Gallery Pictures: the puppets i executed for the film
This film, made by my father in late 2011, is based on the ´Bokkene Bruse´ Norwegian folk adventure. It is a story about a troll who gets tricked into defeat by three very smart goats. What the folk tale doesn´t tell, however- is that the troll is the last of his kind and the goats- mean mobbers. Told from the troll´s perspective, it is the tale of the death of magic, the loss of the old and the ruthlessness of the modern world.
