The long waiting finally has come to an end: My Faroe Islands proudly presents “Small Town Sheep, Season 2“, all actors from our tiny little village of Elduvík, highly paid and highly motivated. Shooting and post-production are done. My favorite scene: The pirate boat sheep sitting on watch, see still picture above. During the summer months, the boat serves as a children’s playground. In the wintertime, the sheep take over. Basic Faroese sheep rule, to put it simple. Summer: mountains. Winter: villages, the “sheep seeking shelter in your house entrance time of year“. As I already mentioned in season 1, situation comedy is all around, all you have to do is pay attention.
One thing is for sure: Faroese sheep know how to get along. One night, deep in winter, I woke up and heard a strange noise. I sat up in bed, sneaked utterly fearless around the corner and saw – nothing. Seconds of silence, then once again - this spooky scratching and sniffing. This time, I decided to inspect the corridor. I stepped inside, raised my head, met my own reflection in the window pane – and saw four pairs of eyes staring at me. Sheep had squeezed themselves close to the walls, and they also had started to pull out blades of grass from the icy ground. An after-midnight feast. I took a deep breath, smiled and went back to bed. Falling asleep did even work without counting sheep.
Now, the long-awaited episodes of “Small Town Sheep, Season 2” are – Episode 1: The watcher behind the wall (pirate sheep). Episode 2: Stormborn. Episode 3: Winter’s coming. Episode 4: The smiling lion. Episode 5: The prince of Elduvík.
