Norwegian folklore is brought to life in this illustrative spot for Tine Milk's 'Winter Olympics' campaign.
This collaborative project for Tine Milk, conceived and designed by Animasjonsdepartementet, developed by the Mill+ Studio and Directed by Martin Engh, displays a battle between the elements and Marit Bjørgen, the Norwegian cross-country skier. Our lead character encounters a series of deadly obstacles such as avalanches, wolves and trolls, synonymous with Norwegian folklore.
Taking influence from famous Norwegian illustrator, Theodor Kittelsen, we see the icy world brought to life by our team of Flash, Cinema 4D and After Effects artists.
