Island Living is a short film about Bragi, a 12 year old boy. He is quite clever but seems to be unable to find his footing in the rigid structures of society. He has a difficult time with everything related to school and borders on being socially isolated.

Further Information

What Are We Doing?

We are working on a short film. Principal photography will be eight days and the film will be shot entirely in Seyðisfjörður (Iceland).

The film centers around 12 year old Bragi. He discovers the power imbued in music when he builds his own drum kit from old paint cans and other scrap material.

The story touches on several important topics such as mental health, male friendship, and social isolation to name a few. We plan on screening the film in schools and following up with an open dialog with our community.

We need help with funding in order to complete the project. We have already come a long way with financing thanks to support from fantastic allies.

Who Are We?

We are two young filmmakers with a burning ambition for our craft.

Viktor Sigurjónsson has been working in production for the past five years. He has good experience with projects that have limited funding and knows how to make them work.

Atli Óskar Fjalarsson is probably better known for his work in front of the camera. He has worked as an actor for over a decade, with international acclaim. For the past several years he has worked in production in Los Angeles.

Together we have been working on this project for little over eight months and are now in the final stages of pre-production, with filming set to start on the 12th of August.

Why Island Living?

There is a troubling fact that looms over our society. All around us, young men are dying by their own hand. Friends and family members in their prime, that check out of this world too soon.

It doesn't matter what corner of society you look at, big city or a small village, the situation is the same. Many young men are depressed or unhappy and don’t know how to ask for help.

This is an issue that we’ve been aware of for quite some time, but the sheer magnitude of the problem has been demoralizing. Leaving us powerless against it. Like putting out a house fire with a glass of water.

We want to do what we can to help friends, brothers, sons and fathers in need.

We met on a film set last year. When we sat down and discussed these issues it quickly became apparent that we shared the same ideals and ambition for action. Viktor had been developing the script for a while and Atli had recently created a platform where men could discuss their feelings in a safe and judgement-free environment. We decided to join forces and now, over half a year later, this film is a reality.

Why Do We Need Your Help?

The project’s main expenses are:

-Travel
-Food and lodging
-Equipment rental
-Set design
-Music
-Post Production

The financing is well on it’s way already, but we need a little help to complete funding and ultimately see the project to it’s fruition. Your contribution would go towards cost of travel, to and from the East-Fjords, as well as food and lodging for the crew during filming.
