Chris Burkard’s ‘Under an Arctic Sky’ Tour Schedule

Have you heard of Chris Burkard and his new film, Under an Arctic Sky? If not, where have you been?

Burkard, a photographer and all-around adventurer, has produced a film alongside Sweatpants Media which is a documentation of the journey of six surfers searching for waves under the Northern Lights off the coast of Iceland.

Burkard is a highly skilled photographer, as well as director, author, speaker, and explorer. He is a man of many talents and is passionate about everything outdoors. In order to produce the film, Burkard worked alongside independent film production agency, Sweatpants Media. They launched an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds for post-production and the worldwide tour. The total amount raised ended up being over $280,000.

Although Iceland was set to have its worst storm in 25 years, the surfers and crew braved the challenging conditions and their efforts have paid off. Here is the official trailer for the film.

The first round of the film’s tour is underway and there are plenty of days still scheduled.
