Curriculum Vitae (CV)

My name is Birkir and I am born and raised in Iceland. I am a freelance filmmaker and a full-time Motion graphic designer for The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (RÚV). My interest in making videos started in 2009 when I and a few other friends started playing around with a camera just for fun. It started as a small hobby, but later on, I wanted to do something more with it. I attended Multimedia School in Iceland called Margmiðlunarskólinn or Reykjavík Academy of Digital Entertainment (RADE). My main focus was VFX and 3D even though I also learned basic programming.

I also used to be a staff member of a christian youth group called UNIK and therefore many of the posters and videos shown on this site are related to that.
