A documentary on natural pools in Iceland in the works
Two friends, Harpa Fönn Sigurjónsdóttir and Helga Sveinsdóttir, traveled around the country as hitchhikers last summer with the goal of bathing in as many natural hot springs as possible. They are now making a documentary about their trip.
The post production of the documentary is now in process. In last few weeks they have been transfering the clips from the cameras to a computer, reviewing the clips, getting an editor to have a look at it etc, all with the assistance of the great team of people that have been assisting them with making this project come to live. Harpa and Helga got really excited to see all the good clips they shot during their trip. Now, they the await the first rough cuts from their editor. They truly hope that their beloved readers, are getting excited as well..!
