As we celebrate our 25 years, we will be showing 25 selected graduation films from our graduated students over the last years. This time it will be the short film “Gunna” from spring 2012.
The short film “Gunna” was the graduation project for Óli Jón Gunnarssson who graduated from Acting in spring 2012
Óli Jón says that the studies in The Icelandic Film School had a very good influence on him. “Even though I have not landed big parts, the Acting studies has given me so much more than that. I am more secure when dealing with other people. It is much easier to stand up in meetings and in front of a crowd and speak, which helps me a lot in my line of work. One often needs to be able to adjust ones character to connect with people and the education I have has been a great advantage in that.
I have landed some smaller roles in both Icelandic and foreign films since I graduated, and it has been both enjoyable and a good experience.
Today I am working on a script for a new short film and am very excited about it” says Óli Jón.
Here is “Gunna”, please enjoy !
