Director Statement

Every year I pick a place off my bucket list that I would love to explore and I go there solo and travel the country in 7 days. This year I chose Iceland and was fortunate enough to bring my drone along with me. I was excited to finally get to get aerial footage of place so rich in natural wonders thats it blows your mind.

This year I also wanted to to try something different and instead of the usual hostel accommodations, I brought my tent and everything I would need to camp. It turned out to be a wild and very cold experience but exhilarating none the less.

I started in Reykjavik and worked my way around the south through the glorious glacier lagoons and majestic waterfalls. I headed to the East through the small fishing towns, and up north through the beautiful farms and dramatic coast lines. Finally I toured the west and the breathtaking Snaefellsnes Peninsula which was by far my favorite place in Iceland.

I hope viewers will enjoy this film as its probably the greatest piece of media and musical score I have ever created. I've never submitted a film to a festival before because I never thought any of my films would see the light of day. However, I am confident that everyone can enjoy at least a small piece of 'Fire and Ice' and the other wordly landscapes. Thanks to the exponentially improving drone technology film makers are now able to take their films to a whole new level, literally.
