My name is Birkir and I am born and raised in Iceland. I used to be a freelance filmmaker and a full-time Motion graphic designer for The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (RÚV) for 6 years, but I'm currently studying Advanced VFX Compositing at Lost Boys Studios in Vancouver, Canada. Since the beginning of my career, I’ve focused on channeling my talent and creativity into meaningful and powerful results. I take pride in the work I do, as well as the strong relationships I’ve built with clients and colleagues. I firmly believe in working hard, working together and having fun along the way.

12-Month Program in Advanced VFX compositing at Lost Boys in Vancouver, Canada.
I went to Norway for one year and attended a bible school. 50% of the study was sports, hiking and other activities and the other 50% were in the classroom.
Also known as Reykjavík Academy of Digital Entertainment (RADE). I learned programming, VFX, 3D modelling, Animation and Web design but my main focus was 3D & VFX.
I learned how to fix cars after a crash and how to customize them e.g. jeeps or trucks. I mainly went to this study to do something while I was figuring out what I wanted to do in the future, which turned out to be video.
