3 Days in Iceland is a film project by Clinton and Loni Stark.
Footage was shot on location in January 2017 across Iceland including Reykjavík, Reykholt, Skolabraut, Fljotshamrar (the home featured in the film) and the South Coast (Highway 1 Ring Road).
Clinton and Loni shot additional scenes for the film on location at an oceanfront home in Mendocino, California in 2018, and in studio at Citadel Art Studios in San Jose, California during the summer of 2020.
Post-production including voice work, sound design, color grading and editing took place during 2020 in San Jose, California and 3 Days in Iceland premiered on the Stark Insider web site on October 9, 2020.
3 Days in Iceland (2020) is the final entry in the Stark’s “3 Days” trilogy which also includes 3 Days in Sonoma (2018) and 3 Days in Paris (2019).
Clinton Stark describes the style of the three shorts as Neo Vérité, his interpretation of a modern day version of the French new wave movement of the 1960s. By combining documentary style shooting with structured and often interweaving, inward-looking scripted studio scenes, the result is neither documentary nor narrative, rather an abstracted and experimental version of both forms. “In other words, the antithesis of a viral video.”
