Further Information

Welcome to our crowdfunding site for the short film "Turn"!

Turn is a short horror thriller that takes place in present day Iceland but is inspired by Icelandic folklore tales about elves.

The film is written and directed by Sesselía Ólafsdóttir.
Sesselía studied acting and directing in London and graduated in spring 2012.
After graduation she focused on acting and has been active both in Iceland and abroad, on stage and in films.
She has always loved creative writing and has written poems, songs, short stories and then one day a script for the short film Turn.
Sesselía has directed for theatre, written and filmed sketches, but Turn is her debut in film directing.

NyArk Media is the production company behind the film but the filmmaker Anna Sæunn Ólafsdóttir is the founder of the company. Anna graduated from the Icelandic Film School in 2012 and has been in production roles in the award winning short films Rainbow Party and Salvation as well as working on the set of the 2015 Cannes Un Certain Regard winning film Rams. Anna has also directed and produced documentaries that have been screened in Iceland.

Veronika Rut Hjartardóttir is the other producer behind the film, but she also graduated from the Icelandic Film School in 2012. She has written and produced several short films and worked on the set of the award winning short film Ártún. Veronika, or Rut as she is sometimes called, has a BA degree in journalism and is currently studying for a Masters in the field.

Our director of photography and co- director of the film is the multitalented filmmaker Peter Callow, who lives in London but works as a filmmaker worldwide. He has directed, produced and edited various documentaries for TV, including the Channel Five six-part series ‘Ross Noble’s Australian Trip’. As well as Ross Noble, Peter has had the opportunity to work with other comedians including Eddie Izzard and Dylan Moran.
Peter has also made many music videos, where he has been able to combine
directing with his childhood passion for visual effects. Recently, he directed his own feature film debut ‘The Circle’.
Peter, multitalented as he is, also edited and did the special effects for ‘Turn’.

The film has been supported by Erasmus+ and we have a team in Finland with Emilia Haukka and the youth film organisation Euphoria Borealis as co- producer. Music, sound design and colour correction were all finished by amazing Finnish film talents - pun intended. For allt the details on our wonderful crew please read the rest of the post.

But why do we need your support now? Let us tell you a little more about the project and what the film holds for you.

On the 13th day of Christmas, January 6th, three friends, Bára, Íris and Sunna take a trip to a cabin in the Icelandic wilderness, a typical getaway in Iceland. Based on Icelandic folklore, individuals from the vicious elf breed of the country appear on crossroads on January 6th every year, with the plan of luring humans into accepting gifts, with dire consequences. On the way to the cabin, the friends get lost on crossroads where a stranger gives them directions to the cabin that sets them off to an ancient world they did not expect to enter.

We are extremely proud of the film and can't wait to share it with the world, but we need a little help in just doing that, and that's where you can help - and be compensated in our own elvish ways for it!

The film has been shot and post production is finished, but further funding is needed clear the way for distribution and film festivals. Film festival submissions are extremely important for short films as they are an opportunity to promote and prove the talent of upcoming filmmakers in order to support future film making projects.

Umskipti will also be developed into a feature project in the future which makes promoting the concept of the short film even more important, as it will also be a "proof of concept" for the bigger project.

The cast of the film are the talented superwomen Ásta Júlía Elíasdóttir, Bergdís Júlía Jóhannsdóttir, Karen Björg Þorsteinsdóttir and Sandra Helgadóttir.
