INSPIRATION & CONCEPT:

 

 “OTHER SPECIES” is meant to be a purely visual film built around the idea of spiritualism, beautiful unison between living things and them travel.   Characters in this film and photographs are constantly merging into one another, forming a collective consciousness , of their minds and bodies. My goal is to create a film that is colorful, playful and magical in its materials with an emotional music traveling, body art, costumes and uniq envinronment in Iceland.

 

Icelandic artist like Bjork, Sigur´ros, Solstafir films and videos are huge inspiration for me in their use of physical props and creatures. I want to bring this  fantasy, vision in to a real world, show the beauty of spirit, nature, otherness and bring it all to the surface.
