Seeing her come to life in 3D animation is a thrill. Besides some key parameters that are required for the project (her height, the way she moves etc), Brian needed to make sure that SúVitra moves and behaves like he thinks a troll would. And that’s new to him - the necessity of adapting her movements to film. Seeing his troll come to life on the screen has been something completely different.
“Taking trolls into the film world has been a new adventure,” he says.
For the team at FlyOver Iceland, it was task well worth pursing. Long fans of Brian's work on Icelandic trolls, they were more than keen to bring him in to the project.
“For well over 35 years, Brian Pilkington has been creating a multitude of illustrated books about Icelandic Trolls,” says Rick Rothschild. “His illustrations and stories about them have over that time caused him to become recognized as the preeminent modern day expert on Trolls. Having Brian participate in our project, bringing his extraordinary expertise and talents to create unique Troll characters who will be featured in our attraction, is quite special.”
