In 2014 Alasdair spent 3 months in the small village of Skagaströnd, Northern Iceland, as part of NES Artist Residency, creating a short documentary about the small teenage population who live there - shot during the notoriously harsh Icelandic winter, it proved to be a unique filmmaking experience.
