SKÜMASKOT . Short Narrative Film
--Cannes Court Mertage 2016 . A young man journeys through grief after the sudden disappearance of a loved one.
A silent voice in the wilderness, that can only be heard when no one is around. In a desire to blend austerity with etherealism, Jared Knecht and Madison Hatch set out alone into the frozen Iceland tundra to explore the broken psyche of a man grieving his fiancee. Hiking across the southern circumference of the country in extreme conditions armed only with a camera, authenticity became transcendental, adversity became beauty, and life became art. Starring Madison Hatch and Megan Scott. Original score composed by Luke Atencio.
