The Saga Of Biorn

The Saga Of Biôrn is a wonderfully animated short created by the graduates of this year’s bachelors programs at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark. This seven minute film tells the tale of Biôrn, an old Viking warrior who is determined to reach Valhalla and join his warrior friends in an afterlife filled with excessive drinking and debauchery, but gaining an honorable death isn’t as easy as Biôrn first thinks…

The animation in this is really quite beautiful and it’s fluid combination of 3D and 2D works perfectly. Indeed there’s a lot of things in this film that I could easily go on about but maybe I should just leave it here in your capable hands and let you actually watch the thing. I hope you enjoy it – I’m pretty sure you will!

    haha. love the ending!

    the character design and color script is spot-on perfect throughout. love the overall feel of the piece.

    not a fan of the uneccessary voice over in the beginning. it just felt out of place…and i’m sure there was a way to tell this story without it.

    but the ending really does save it :)

    Hands down favourite moment was when the huge guy I totally expected to fall through the precarious-looking rock got carried away by an eagle instead. Fantastic
