SÖNGVAKEPPNIN

Söngvakeppnin, or "The Song Contest," is an annual music competition organized by The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (RÚV). It determines the country's representative for the Eurovision Song Contest. It is one of the most significant programs they have each year. Söngvakeppnin is a multi-artist competition, with between 5 and 10 songs competing. The contest has consisted of 2 semi-finals aired before a grand final.

Autodesk Maya was my primary software for this project. All the models were bought from Turbosquid except the logo, designed by Sævar Jóhannesson and modeled by me. Finally, the scene was rendered out in Arnold with the help of Zync, Google Cloud Rendering. It was then brought into After Effects for composition.

Producer - Salóme Þorkelsdóttir

Design - Birkir Ásgeirsson, Sævar Jóhannesson

I also did the graphic for the LED screens on the stage for certain songs over the past few years. Here is one from 2018 when Robin Bengtsson came as a guest star to sing at Söngvakeppnin. He was the representative for Sweden in Eurovision Song Contest 2017. He ended up in 5th place with this song, "I Can't Go On."
