“Odin Chest” was my graduation project for my studies at the animation dept., Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design.
This project is a pre-production “Bible” for a animation series I envision.
This series tell the story of the adventures of an old Viking and is teenager companion in the world of Nordic mythology.
The project included all pre-production stages for the first season of this series – Synopsis & treatment, characters and props design, literary analysis, script and a storyboard for the first episode. my work on this project has started in a class exercise years before, and had evolved into a complete animation series vision.
This action-based story along with is Nordic characters and mythical atmosphere is actually dealing with a most serious subject, old age and its consequences.
The inspiration and idea for this project was influenced by my experience with my grandfather, whom I loved dearly, is ageing and deterioration.
