An interesting project landed the other day when our own Elfar Thor Gudbjartsson was asked to record and direct a scene for the coming film “Miracle Valley”, by Greg Sestero at The Film School. BjorgvinFrans Gislason acted in the scene and Elfar got students from the school to assist, among them Thorsteinn Sturla Gunnarsson, Karolina Baehrenz Larusdottir, Snorri Sigurbjorn Jonsson, Ottar Andri Ottarsson, Halfdan Hordur Palsson og Kristofer Smari Leifsson .
Elfar told us ;
It was actually kind of funny how this came about. I was just relaxing at home when my friend Rakel sent me a message and asked if we could chat. She calls me and tells me her friend, Greg Sestero, needs some help to shoot a scene here in Iceland for his upcoming film. Before I knew it I was talking to him daily about the project. The reason that he needed it shot here was that Bjorgvin Frans was not able to travel abroad. Greg, like everyone that gets to know Bjorgvin, loves him and he had to have him in the film so he got me to make it happen with the greatest students in the country! So you could say that I really fell backwards into the assignment.
You can safely say that there is never a dull moment at The Film School.
