The Faroe Islands are a mountainous place with small curvy roads and tunnels. In the Summer a lot of tourists come here on the ferry, and bring their cars along. And it is an excellent place to travel by car, as the roads stretch out to every corner of the country. But there are dangers on the road and some road rules, which foreigners should be extra aware of.
The Faroese Main Road Authority came to us with this assignment. They wanted a looped movie to be played back nonstop on the 2 day ferry trip to the Faroes. A movie, which made new visitors aware of the dangers on the Faroes roads. It was to be shown on different monitors onboard the ferry, but without sound.
We had worked with the talented illustrator, Janus á Húsagarði, before, and he was hired for this assignment as well. We made a storyboard, Janus drew some black and white illustrations – we cut them out, animated them and added colours.
