This is the first project in a series of hopefully many more released by Team Nine. Set in Switzerland and Iceland, Shutter Ísland tells the story of Iwan and Raphael meeting up for a fifteen day journey exploring the island in the North Atlantic. We knew that Iceland is also referred to as photographer's paradise so we packed some camera equipment and a plan for a video project. The idea was to capture the sceneries that we came across while driving and hiking, and to bring them home as a souvenir. Good memories.
Yours truly, Team Nine (teamnine.ch)

By far the largest 2nd hand vinyl store in Iceland with about 30.000 LPs. Icelandic music + about every other genre, including a big selection of "black" music.
Full video diary (1hr27min) of a 26 day bicycle trek. Clockwise round Iceland. July/August 2010. 1495km. Not much cycling action until about 15min into the vid, but lots from then onwards, so may want to skip the first 15min.
For full details of the trip including full equipment list, route map, loads of photos, tips and important considerations about cycle touring in Iceland, visit earthwindandtyres.wordpress.com

HEILD translates into Entirety and is a non-narrative film featuring the country of my origin. Iceland. The film focuses on all aspects of it´s unique and diverse nature and landscapes, it´s entire nation and culture. The goal with this film is to present Iceland in a way it has never been presented before, using many elements of higher-end cinematography. There are places here everyone knows, but there are also thousands of well hidden places. To find these locations one has to be adventurous or a local, and to capture them right, one has to be creative and extremely patient.
The film is a TrailerPark Studios production and is expected to release in late 2012
Update: HEILD is now in post-production and its premiere will be postponed 6-9 months, due to some time-and technical related difficulties. Another theatrical trailer will then premiere online, short before the release of the full film.

Produced and co-shot by my brother Helgi Karl Gudmundsson

Videos with me, Iceland, in them
Halló. This is Iceland.
I am an island and many people like to visit me and take videos with me in them. (They probably think I am very photo-genic.)
Here are some of them for you to look at with your eyes. Then, you can maybe come and visit me, too.
See you soon.
P.S. You can read more about me here:
