a little film (Iceland)

I am much more a photograph person than I am a video person. Video just isn't in my blood-- my parents have thousands of photos of me as a child, but I've never seen a home movie of me as a baby, or any other age.

So this is new territory, and I'm pretty excited about it. There is something that film can capture that a still photograph inherently cannot. It moves the way your molecules move when you're exploring a new land for the first time.

This new land we travelled to was a surreal, hard, fairlyland dreamscape.
I hope you enjoy it through our eyes.

I hope it inspires you to make a little film of your own.

  1. WOO! Very well done video. There's also nothing like roadtripping...this'll make anyone want to travel. Was that all you or did B help too?

  2. Ahh, I LOVE IT!! This is so amazing. I am beyond inspired. Keep it up!

  3. I went to Iceland years and years ago, but didn't get to roam around all these beautiful spots as you did. Thanks for the great memories and dreaming!

  4. good job and beautiful place.

  5. Such a great video! It just reinforces my hopes to visit Iceland very soon! The ending is so sweet and it made me tear up!
