BioBritish Documentary Film Producer
Currently in production with the feature-length documentary 'Future of Hope'
Hope is not a dream, but a way of making dreams a reality
The film is focusing on the positive and inspirational things to come out of Iceland since the economy crash and intends to improve the reputation and image of Iceland on a global scale and also give hope to many Icelanders faced with an uncertain future.
We made a short trailer earlier this year to show the mood, feel and production values of the film and this can be viewed at the following site:
You can also gauge the reaction the film is already getting on the facebook page, now with over 3,000 members.
‘Future of Hope’ explores inspirational characters growing organically and promoting more self-sufficiency and less environmentally damaging imports of fresh produce, pioneers and world leaders in new renewable energy sources and and those looking to re-invent Iceland as a means to promote positive change and show the rest of the world what can be achieved from the embers of a huge economic crash. From the greatest disasters comes the most inspiring change.
We, the Producer and Director, are both from England but the rest of the crew; Co-Producer: Herbert Sveinbjörnsson, Editor: Elisabet Ronaldsdottir, Sound Recordist/Designer: Gunnar Steinn Ulfarsson, Animator/Graphic Designer: Una Lorenzen, Assistant Producer: Svala Magnea Georgsdottir and several film school trainees are all Icelandic. The score will be composed by Biggi Hilmarsson of the bands Blindfold and Ampop (signed by Universal Music) and will feature various other Icelandic artists.
The film is primarily character driven following the organic farming movement in Iceland, Re-invention and Entrepreneurship and Renewable Energy. Featuring interviews with Former President and first female President in the world Vigdis Finnbogadottir, Gudjon Mar of the Ministry of Ideas, Andri Snaer Magnason (director and author of the film and book ‘Dreamland’), Minister of Education, Science and Culture and the Mayor of Reykjavik to name but a few. We do not intend to dwell on ‘what went wrong’ but instead look at the positive people, companies and ideas that Iceland now has and has had for many years but until now has been relatively unrecognised.
From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success.
A positive film that shows Iceland as a role model for the rest of the world.
