Film scoring

In Iceland you will find a variety of professional studios, located in both Reykjavik and throughout the country.

Icelandic film composers have made a big impact internationally with their work; e.g. Jóhann Jóhannsson, Ólafur Arnalds, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Atli Örvarsson and Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson.

Iceland’s unique environment and its rich resource of highly trained musicians, arrangers and producers formed the initial backbone to the success of the aforementioned composers. This workforce, and its vast experience and insight into the realization of effective film soundtracks - big and small - is readily at the disposal of filmmakers longing for some Nordic magic to enliven their vision.
