Welcome to Thorvald!

Sometimes, the process of making a stop motion animated film is a bit like being locked in a deadly struggle with a fearsome sea serpent, only to look into its face and recognize yourself. This blog is for anyone who has battled a 12-inch tall monster of their own and discovered a worthy adversary and a beautiful friendship.

Thorvald Lives!

I am fully aware that my protracted absence from the blogging universe is 
 inexcusable, and yet I shall attempt to exculpate myself. Between working at an archaeological site in Egypt, and completing my MSc Film Studies dissertation at the University of Edinburgh, I have been somewhat distracted. 
It is sad but true that Thorvald's Kickstarter funding campaign has proved unsuccessful. I would like to extend my warmest gratitude to Thorvald's supporters, and all those who pledged funds in his virtuous cause. Your noble intentions will not be forgotten, even if they were not given the opportunity to come to fruition.
However, it is neither in my nature, nor in Thorvald's to accept defeat! The film will still get made (although later than originally planned), and work is well underway on set construction and costume production. Here is a shot of Thorvald's developing costume, in the process of being completed layer by layer. Shots of one of the sets in progress will soon follow.
