Jón Axel Matthíasson - Directing and Producing

Jón Axel will graduate from Directing and Producing on the 27th of May with his film "The Ill Equipped Producers"

The film is about Skúli, who takes his script to a party to meet a well-known producer, Frikki, but Skúli gets confused about people and meets Ari. Ari takes advantage of his innocence and pretends to be this producer, hoping to make enough money from the film to pay off his debts. This leads Ari and Skúli to unexpected events where they have to find a way out of their problems
