Deep in the woods a lumberjack and his team work to the rhythm of their joyous working melody. However, this melody is soon to be disturbed by the introduction of new technology and the Lumberjack must now face the violent consequences alone.
This moving short film by Per Rene Klausen was produced as one of the 2010 bachelor films from the Animation Workshop, which has rightly been called one of the most dedicated animation institutions in the world. It is Denmark’s leading animation institution with activities within the areas of education, culture, communication and business; and we have to say that across the board, we’ve been hugely impressed with the quality of work of their students.
