'Saxo Grammaticus animation' is an animated pilot- film for children based on

story takes place in 1203AD,

his will. Rune
would much rather be a knight. But then Rune meets Saxo, and
learns that the pen is mightier than the sword …

Target group: all ages

Behind the scenes
The animation style uses a mix of digital photos (of the characters) and real
footage (of the background scenes). This is
a new method that is cost-effective
and can be adapted to both
television and cinema formats.

Characters were filmed on blue screen. Each frame was digitally painted in
Adope Photoshop, and all character elements animated
separately from the
backgrounds before final composition.
