Join the creation of a short film in Iceland

Euphoria Borealis is collaborating with the Icelandic NyArk Media to realise a short film Turn. We are now looking for young under 30 year old crew members to join the project.

The short film Turn is a creative project made and produced by young Icelandic and Finnish creatives. The concept and plot of the film is based on Icelandic Folklore where elves are believed to live in rocks all over the country, sometimes wrecking havoc and known for trying to trick people by seducing them to join them with for instance food. They are also known for being on crossroads on certain times of the year as well as replacing individuals and making people crazy. They are generally rather vicious and jealous of humans as they are portrayed in old sayings and the Icelandic folklore generally. 

The film received an Erasmus+ grant in early 2017 to enable the young creatives of Finland and Iceland to collaborate together. Turn will be shot in late November in Northern Iceland, with post production taking place in winter-spring 2018.

The main objective of the project is to establish a co-operation in order for all participants to gain experience on international co-productions and develop future projects and grow the network of young film makers filmmaking industry in each country. We want to learn together in a concrete manner, while actually making a short film.

We are now looking for 2-3 more crew members from Finland to join the team:

  • Sound recordist*
  • Sound designer*
  • Color grading

* One person can apply for both of these roles as well.

The project covers travels and accommodation to the shooting in Iceland or travel suring post production. There is also a small compensation for your work in the budget.

How to apply?

Requirements: You must be a resident of Finland and under 30 years of age.
