Nicolas had a movie in his sights, and nature would take the leading role. A childhood growing up on the islands of the Pacific left him with a penchant for islands, and so he chose Iceland. What he produced was pretty awesome, and a glacier walk on the blue ice of Svínafellsjökull topped it all off! This is his story.
What motivated you to visit Iceland?
I wanted to make a road movie in winter where nature is the main character. It wouldn’t be original if I say the beauty of the scenery is the main driver to pick my destination, but it is deeply what I feel I am attracted to when I travel. When I was a kid, I used to live in Tahiti where nature is so colorful, with the lagoon, the flowers, the volcanic islands like Moorea, Bora-Bora. All of this is printed in my mind like paintings. As I never got back to Polynesia, I eventually spotted the perfect (affordable) adventure destination to experiment outdoor sensations and shoot great colorful nature: Iceland.
