The Aurora Borealis and the unique scenery of Iceland captured in a mesmerizing way, where the amazing Auroras tell the story. This is a short trailer for our first 30 minute film, which will be available in full HD and 4K resolution, on DVD and digital download in November 2014!

My fascination with nature is a long journey that i think will have no end. After one year of shooting, and waiting for the right moments to capture it throughout the 4 seasons, and after so many failed sequences and many repetitions due to the unconventional weather conditions, this movie has finally seen the light. I shot in cold and hard weather but it was totally worth it! in this movie, I am trying to capture the core of nature : its abstraction.
People need to see real/familiar figures in order to understand abstraction. So what if, what to us is familiar, is nothing but an illusion created by our real perception. Knowing that this illusion is vital, nature is the exception. Nature is initially a real phenomenon that is perceived differently yet we still aim to decipher abstract figures nature provide us in order to understand it.
In the breeze of cold winter days and in the warm and beautiful summer nights, i tried to reveal the miracle of nature. Each moment is very unique and magical. The mountains and the village are each a beautiful crucial elements for life to carry on but all scenes cannot go without each other.
the challenge in this movie is to translate this abstraction into a real image knowing that this movie is nothing but a series of abstract movements. i am very happy and excited to share this experience with you through my images and i hope you will have the chance to experience the abstract beauty of nature.

A short film about a character who abandons societies predictability in a bid to uncover the secrets buried within the mysterious and dramatic landscape of the Scottish Highlands.
Throughout the film, the character works to uncover the meaning of solitude, isolation and how removing himself from the trappings of society helps him discover more meaning.
Born from our reflexion about how travel impacts everyone’s lives, ISOLATION was made thanks to our encounter with Jamie, a solo traveller on a spiritual quest around the world at the time.
The piece was shot while traveling in a leaky van through remote parts of Scotland.
Directed by : Mathieu Bernat & David Guersan
