We started working on this project nearly two years ago, which is why we are so happy to present the trailer for our film! The piece is a rollicking good time, edited by the incredible Michelle Mizner with original music by the talented Joshua Camp. Filming in Iceland over the last 2 falls has been the most incredible experience, and has motivated us to go full-time with our filmmaking endeavors.
We are reaching out to those who believe nature, beauty, adventure, and storytelling are necessary elements to a thoughtful life. We’re asking for your support to fund the post-production of the film, so please make a donation at any level through our KICKSTARTER page. We have wonderful rewards, such as filmmaking workshops, gear from 66 North, archival prints, signed copies of the DVD, and more!

The New York Times’ Lens blog has written a beautiful piece on the photography and filmmaking process behind Herd In Iceland. Last week Paul and Lindsay were interviewed by Matt McCann and James Estrin edited the photos in the NYT office. We are so appreciative of Lens and the community it has built for photographers and photo enthusiasts. It’s such an honor to be included in the list of projects mentioned on Lens.
