“Shoot­ing our first short film on a mi­cro bud­get 80 kilo­me­ters in­side the Arc­tic Cir­cle was al­ways go­ing to be in­ter­est­ing,” says jour­nal­ist and film pro­ducer Lan­gen­heim about his month­long stay in Nor­way’s re­mote Lo­foten Is­lands last sum­mer. “In ret­ro­spect, it was a bit of a bonkers un­der­tak­ing and we only pulled it off by en­list­ing the vol­un­tary ser­vices of half of Stam­sund, the fish­ing vil­lage where we were based. Yet the ex­pe­ri­ence also yielded a good travel story. Our lo­ca­tion was spec­tac­u­lar and home to gen­er­a­tions of cod fish­ers and whale hun­ters, as­sorted bo­hemian types, and a bur­geon­ing tourism in­dus­try. I would rec­om­mend this ar­chi­pel­ago for any­one’s bucket list.”
