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.

Pick-Ups and Post-Production

After many months of planning, shooting, and editing, The Green Wall is entering the final stages of production! This summer I was able to capture some exciting new footage (check out some snippets in my previous post http://thorvaldandthestoorworm.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/work-in-progress-small-preview-of-green.html).

It's coming together nicely, but I've decided to do some additional shooting to add more drama and a new dimension to the camera angles. The story of the Green Wall is told through the eyes of a girl who perceives her world in a mythic and whimsical way and I wanted the shooting style to reflect that.

 I've just acquired a couple of drones and will be using them in the coming months to get some aerial shots here in Edinburgh.This is my first time working with drones and I am really looking forward to it! I will be sharing some pictures of the drones in action as well as samples of their footage, so keep watching this blog.
