A collection of storyboards, serving also as pitches to clients for TV commercials undertaken by Qvisten Animation to appear on Norwegian television. These were also to serve as key-frames or concept boards.

Top: A storyboard created for a new version of the classic Nugatti Norwegian spread which included pieces of hazelnut.

Top below: Three proposed variants for the Orkla Foods Idun Tomatketchup commercial (2014) for their new Tomato ketchup with less sugar. The client opted for version 1.

Following: A storyboard proposal for Norwegian Food company, Fjordland’s Safara – a children’s yoghurt snack. The style needed to reflect the packaging and had to feature the monkey front-and-centre. Qvisten proposed a 2D animation solution.

Bottom: A storyboard for one of a series of three commercials aired on Norwegian television in 2014 announcing a new chocolate bar marrying the Nidar chocolate with the Polly peanuts. Parodying iconic scenes from Hollywood films (no prize guessing the film here!) with the idea that this is a love match, the classic Polly peanut character is cast with Ms Nidar Chocolate. An accident or misstep leads Polly to unexpectedly fall-into (rather than for) the lady chocolate bar and the music comes to an abrupt halt.¬† The storyboards¬† also served as keyframes for the render and for the right ‘chocolate pour’, which was filmed rather than created in CG.

Originally we considered making the entire Titanic sequence cell-shaded, in keeping with Polly’s appearance however we instead opted for a more realistic look. The finished result can be seen below the storyboards and is courtesy of Qvisten Animation, Oslo.
