Hurstwic recently traveled to Iceland to shoot our next film, “The Final Battle of Grettir the Strong”. The saga hero Grettir, and his brother Illugi, lived on the remote island of Drangey about 1000 years ago. There, they were attacked and killed by an overwhelming force led by Þorbjörn öngull. Our film, due to be released in spring 2017, brings that battle to life on the screen, shot on the location of the historical battle.

In order to make our film, we needed to construct a replica of the Viking-age turf house that Grettir and Illugi lived in on Drangey. This short video shows how we made the house.
