A voice in the wilderness, that can only be heard when no one is around. In a desire to blend austerity with etherealism, Jared Knecht and Madison Hatch set out alone into the frozen Iceland tundra to explore the broken psyche of a man grieving his fiancee. Hiking across the southern circumference of the country in extreme conditions armed only with a camera, authenticity became transcendental, adversity became beauty, and life became art. Starring Madison Hatch and Megan Scott. Original score composed by Luke Atencio.
SPACE is a travel film. It is also a reminder (to ourselves) that this strange, unique wilderness is ours for now...and each day the lights turn on.
Special Thanks to Kate for being the perfect companion for the long journey + our son WES - one of his first words was 'LIGHT!" - seeing his constant curiosity as he figures out this crazy world is a huge inspiration. Love you guys.
Thanks to Howl Collective! Forest Woodward, Elliot Ross, Patrick O'Brien, and Jim Lind...you guys are supremely talented and this couldn't have happened without your globetrotting generosity and inspiring spontaneity. Thank you!!!
Thanks to James at SPACESHIPS + Eilish at WonderWorks LA for putting the puzzle pieces (space van + space man) together so quickly.
Thanks to DIJIFI in Brooklyn, NY for the Super8 to HD transfer.
It's crazy to think back, but this trip (in 2009) was the first time we used LENSPROTOGO. 7D + 11-16 + 35 + 70-200. They were awesome then...and they are even awesomer now! Thanks for your continuing support!
