    Garšabęr studio.

    Recently I was lucky enough to visit the LazyTown studios in Garšabęr (thanks to Ana/beticaforever!) during a holiday to Iceland.

    Ana's been pestering me to write something on the forum about my trip , so I thought I'd finally get around to doing it. I have no idea what people would find interesting, so feel free to ask questions.

    I was supposed to get the grand tour courtesy of Mįni Svavarsson, however he was ill on the day so I was shown around by a guy called Gunnar Helgason, who was excellent.

    When I arrived, I did briefly wonder if I was in the right place - the studio's on an average-size industrial estate, and the building itself doesn't have the words LazyTown or Latibęr written anywhere on it apart from a tiny little sign by the door, which isn't visible from the road.
    I was also expecting it to be a lot bigger, even though I'd seen aerial photos and maps of the area before I went, so I was surprised at how much they've managed to cram into the one building.

    Some of the sets were still up, so I got to see the airship, Robbie's lair and the Mayor's house. I also got shown around the make-up and costume departments, Mįni's recording studio and some of the more office-like bits.
    Yarr harr fiddle-de-de, being a is all right with me! Do what you want 'cause a lives free, you are a !

    That's nordic modesty for ya, never expect a scandinavian to brag about something, a small sign by the dorr, for people to orientate is enough, no need to make a big fuss about it.
    And to answer Ana, that's 2 of the big qualityes of germanic people, practicality and modesty

    Re: Garšabęr studio.

    I have a picture of the outside of the building that I can put up, although it's not any better than the one on the Geymslur website.
    Of course I have pictures of the inside of the building as well, but I don't think I'm allowed to post them on the internet - below is an extract from an email I received from Mįni:

    You would probably have to sign a document – stating that you won“t publish the photos etc. Pretty standard stuff.
    As Burt pointed out, navigation is not my strong suit! It didn't really help that I kept turning off at all the exits marked "Garšabęr" (I think there were 3: North, South and West, or something like that). In fact to get to the studio you have to drive past ALL the exits for Garšabęr and come off at the next one, if you're coming from the Reykjavķk direction on road 41 (Reykjanesbraut?). Of course if you're coming straight from Keflavķk airport then you have to turn off just BEFORE the signs for Garšabęr. If that's not confusing, I don't know what is.

    I got to see the staff gym that everyone (mostly Magnśs?) works out in. When I walked in I thought it was absolutely enormous, and then realised there were mirrors on all the walls, lol. They've packed lots of shiny equipment in, though.

    I think they were using the green screen to film something else, as there was some sort of 4x4 parked in the middle of the studio! I'm assuming that's what it was there for, as there was plenty of room in the car park outside...

    Most of the ground floor is taken up by the filming area, costume and make-up departments, puppet storage, that sort of thing. Upstairs is mostly office space: a board room, lots of people sat at computers. Very modern-looking, lots of glass, wooden floors. Fantastic views out over the volcanic countryside, no wonder they have such large windows. Who needs art on the wall when you have that?

    Hmm, I see what your saying about the depression thing...I mean, look at Africa or India, the lives most of them have , yet how many of them ever get sad about it? same goes for all warm climates (including the US gettos )...BUT...it must be a subjective thing, I mean I feel best durring the winter, not durring the too warm, too hummide summers I'v been having for about 5 years or more...I also fell in love with LT during winter ...also think of the vikings, or medieval germans, they were VERY sad people indeed ...serious is not the same thing as sad.
    BTW I thought you were atheist ? lol what you praying for jk

    Re: Garšabęr studio.

    Awesome that you were able to visit the studio. I'm surprised there are people still working there, I was expecting it to be empty. Was the gym empty when you went in there?

    Since you are in contact with Mani, would you happen to know if he knows about the LazyTown US license with Viacom/Nickelodeon? I guess what I'm actually asking is if anyone who is in contact with someone from LazyTown Entertainment to ask their contact about the LazyTown US license and if it expires this year. Also, are there any plans for LazyTown on Blu-ray?

    Admittedly, I did not check out the other topics so this could have been answered already.

    *Thanks to Ultra Magnus for Nindanjoe.

    Well, one of my contacts said he didn't know why it wasn't on Blu-Ray yet, because he thought they should, but he's not in charge of marketing.
