The sheep were great to work with, even easier than the actors. A local farmer from Bardardalur, Magnus Skarphedinsson, was our sheep trainer. He did a great job. I put the emphasis on getting the main actors into a farmer’s state of mind. They got acquainted with sheep farming through academic research as well as personal experience. We had “sheep rehearsal period” for several days, where we only rehearsed scenes with sheep. I found out in pre-production that sheep temperament varies greatly between farms.
