W E L C O M E T O AT L A N T I C S T U D I O S H O T S P O T: I C E L A N D ! Iceland has recently become one of the hot spots for international film makers. Unique locations with astounding natural beauty have attracted such films as Batman Begins, The Flags of Our Fathers, Tomb Raider and Die Another Day just to mention a few examples. With Atlantic Studios’ excellent new facilities, producers can now complement their exterior shooting in Iceland with studio filming - or just come for the interior shots and take advantage of our firstclass facilities. Atlantic studios are located in the Ásbrú enterprise park, next to Keflavík International Airport.

Several popular filming locations are situated close to the studio: black beaches, lava fields, hot springs, mountain areas, geothermal areas, lighthouses and the Blue Lagoon spa, just to name a few examples. The Icelandic wilderness, with their majestic glaciers and many striking and unique types of landscape, are only a few hours away by car.
FILMED USING GREEN RENEWABLE ENERGY
Over 70% of Iceland’s total energy needs come from renewable energy sources and over 99% of all its electricity supply is either geothermal or hydroelectric in origin. Iceland is in a unique position to become carbon-neutral and oil-free ahead of most other countries, and to demonstrate how this ambition can be achieved. Both electricity and heating at the Ásbrú Enterprise Park are provided using renewable geothermal resources. By being filmed at Atlantic Studios, a film project can be based on green energy.

Atlantic Studios are only 5 minutes away from Keflavík International Airport, from where there are direct flights to many of the major cities in the world, for instance London (3 hours) and New York (5 hours).

Helguvík harbour is 5 minutes from Atlantic Studios. Helguvík is the main oil-supply and distribution harbour for the Reykjanes area, and now offers improved services for industrial freighters and oil vessels. The port of Helguvík easily accommodates ships up to 200 m in length with a draught of 10 m by a 150-m long quay with a generous wharf area behind it.
C L O S E T O R E Y K J AV I K
Atlantic Studios are located only 45 minutes’ drive from downtown Reykjavík and there is a direct bus route, the “Reykjanes Express”, connecting Ásbrú with the two main Universities in Reykjavík. Reykjavík – Iceland’s capital – is a young and daring city characterized by strong contrasts. It has an astounding variety of restaurants, offering both traditional and international cuisine cooked using the finest ingredients. Reykjavík city centre during the day and after hours at weekends, when the party is well under way, are two completely different experiences. Reykjavík is well-known for its vibrant nightlife, with trendy bars and clubs open until the (often not-so) early hours of the morning. More information: www.visitreykjavik.is

G R E E N D E V E L O P M E N T AT Á S B R Ú The buildings at Ásbrú are being renovated in accordance with a policy of maximum reutilization of building materials. The aim is to minimise the use of new building materials, energy and space required for landfills, and to reduce harmful emissions. The method has shown to contribute significantly to the profitability of projects and shorten time needed for preparation. The development at Ásbrú is Iceland’s largest recycling and redevelopment project.

Ásbrú is an old military air base which was closed in 2006. It is currently being renovated and redeveloped by KADECO. Like most other localities in Iceland, it uses 100% renewable energy sources, both for electricity generation and space heating. Sustainability and reutilisation at Ásbrú can be seen not only in the sources of the power supply and the definition of new roles and functions for the existing structures but also in the methods used in renovation. Atlantic Studios are one of the environmentally-friendly projects at Ásbrú. These are located in a building that was originally the first large air-force hangar, built in 1943; later it was used for automobile maintenance services and equipment storage. A very high proportion of the extant buildings and materials was used in the construction of the studios.
