Outliers, Vol. I: Iceland is a collaborative multimedia project about a small group of filmmakers, photographers and a musician who set out on a journey to explore the remote countryside of Iceland in October of 2011, meeting there for the first time. The film features photographers Tim Navis (LA) and Kim Holtermand (Denmark), as well the electronic composer Deru - who composed and curated an original score based on field recordings from the trip.
Produced by Scenic, the mission was to improvise and document our experiences with the landscape, residents, and traditions we encountered. We aimed to synthesize the material we came back with into a group-produced collection of moving pictures, photography, and music. The production and materials for the project were almost entirely funded through a Kickstarter campaign. The countless post-production hours were volunteered and the tracks on the music compilation have been contributed by many talented international producers and composers who have been gracious enough to collaborate on this not-for-profit project.
With our web shop, we hope to sell limited quantities of the surplus merchandise from the original fundraiser in an effort to recuperate some of the additional out-of-pocket expenses, help with the production of the live performance/film screening in June, as well as offer the opportunity for those who missed out on the Kickstarter campaign to buy a crafted, physical release of our project. We're really excited about the spirit that went into this journey and these artifacts, and know that you'll all appreciate them as well.
