    Default Interview: Storm Studios

    Banner

    After a few rounds of interviews in the gaming industry, we felt it was time to switch gears and shine the spotlight on movie effects once again. Today we are pleased to bring you the first of two interviews focused on Trolljergen (Troll Hunter, for those of us not fluent in Norwegian) -- a movie that is being produced in Norway and will be coming soon to theaters in the rest of the world.

    Storm Studios is a Norwegian team that worked on bringing some of these fascinating creatures to life for the film. In our interview, we spoke about the challenges of this particular project and how ZBrush helped them rise to the occasion.

    Norway is proud of their trolls, and we're proud to present this glimpse into how the fascinating creatures were created.




    Here are a few of the MANY images that are found in the interview. Find them there so that you can see them full size!

    Many thanks to Martin and his team for taking the time to share so much with us about their work on Trollhunter! And don't forget to check back again soon for part 2, with the team at Gimpville.


    Use this thread to discuss Storm Studios' Troll Hunter artwork and share your thoughts!

    Thanks guys. Hopefully, you'll get to see it real soon. There has been a lot of requests so I guess the production company has a killer export plan

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask here as well.
