Our Projects

Our first projects come from a large Norwegian client looking to produce several narrative series. Topics include historical figures in Asia Minor in 75-400 AD as well as European figures in recent centuries. Some will be cinematic and full of beautiful scenes and compositions, with highly stylised but realistic animation. Others will have a more simplistic informational feel.
