Aloha Holocaust by Kristjan Torr

Driving south to help out an Italian friend in Reykjavik. Time to leave this holocaust behind me. 

The trip might take a couple of days due to Jökulhlaup ([ˈjœːkʏl̥øip]).

Luckily my car was able to cross the foggy highlands bypassing the several flooded areas. Eventually, I reach a point where the entire southward surface is submerged in a melted glacial grey goo. I park, and fall asleep to the thunder-bolting sound of water and ice.

I woke up to a massive construction racket and saw that during the night, workers had managed to build two temporary bridges. With the coast cleared, I head south to meet Davide.

Filming under the waterfall was a painful experience. A raging torrent and strong winds permeate the area making hard to manuver.

And that a wrap for the Korean part of the production.

Time for steam and sleep.

The Siren - Day IIII by Kristjan Torr

On our final day in the south we ran into some trouble securing a location we needed for a scene set in a cave.

Turned out Darren Aronofsky had rented the entire south beach to shoot some scenes for the epic bible film Noah.

Luckily we ran into a nice guy from the set who slipped us the calling sheets which revealed a four hour window to steal the location.
