To celebrate the 25th year of The Icelandic Film School we will be showing selected graduation films from the years past. This time we are showing the short film “No Traffic” from the fall semester of 2011
The shortfilm”No Traffic” is a joint graduation project between Otto Gunnarsson from Directing and Producing and Atli Kristofer Petursson from Creative Technology, both graduates in the fall of 2011
Speaking with Ottó Gunnarsson, the films director, he said;
I went to The Icelandic Film School thinking that the school could teach me the base of film making so I would be prepared to work in the industry. Some people enter the school thinking that they will leave there as fully developed film makers but I realized that the school would give me the tools needed, but it was my job to utilize them.
I have been working in film making constantly since I graduated and was just wrapping up shooting of “Víti í Vestmannaeyjum” where I was second assistant director
