So, Volcanocafé readers and kind supporters of our “Hekla:The Movie” project, the first baby steps of our momentous journey have been taken. Carl has left the world of corporate mergers to fend for itself and journeyed to Iceland to supervise the first pre-production meeting, alongside Eggert, Bergsveinn and me (Nick).

With gallons of coffee and some excellent Icelandic cakes to fuel the creative process, our intrepid production team has collectively braved the trials and tribulations presented by everything from noxious clouds of SO2, to gangs of Blackpool schoolkids, as we have scoured Iceland for likely film locations. We have but one mission: to boldly go where hundreds of TV and film crews have gone before. But there’s a difference: we’re going to get it right.

    • Thanks for the link Michaela, I found the bit where the volume of lava erupted from Holohraun was quoted as ‘around a million cubic kilometres’ particularly interesting! 😉
      LOL
