Valtari films finished
In early 2012, the band gave a dozen film makers the same budget and asked them to create videos inspired by songs on the album.
This hands off approach was very unusual for the Icelandic post rockers who are usually very involved with the creation of their film clips. "It was a little bit scary to completely let go," bassist Georg Hólm told ABC Dig Music "we learnt a lot from it and those films are amazing."
The final film, a 10 minute piece entitled Leaning Towards Solace featuring the songs Dauðalogn and Varúð has been released online. You can view the whole film on Vimeo right here.
A DVD collection of all sixteen videos will be released on March 5th 2013.
