Deep Blue

Deep Blue brings the tales of water. We have explored only 5% of the world’s oceans. The undiscovered majority of the ocean has been part of heroic stories; it is a sailors grave and a vikings funeral. What we know about the deep blue and what we use of it can be compared to how we use the Internet, just the tip of the iceberg.
Arnar Ásgeirsson selected One Minutes with an apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic feel to them, almost science fiction, referring to his surroundings in Iceland that, according to Ásgeirsson, often feels like a sci-fi film.

How To

‘How To’ deals with convenient tips. It is a compilation of short films that teach us something within One Minute. What do you do, for instance, if you have to tie your shoes and have only one hand free? Another film shows a variety of ways to separate an egg yolk: not all of them are very practical. One of the films was made by Hans Aarsman himself. He had an uncle Loek, one of those characters found in every family, who told unforgettable stories. Aarsman’s uncle taught him how to wash his hands in a jiffy when they’re covered in black grease: first rub them with olive oil, then with soap and only after that, rinse them under the faucet.
