Comments on Style:
"Scandinavian animation doesn't have a single style, like say Pixar does or Japanese anime, which may have made it harder to brand it internationally," says Stefan Fjeldmark, head of Zentropa's new Rambuk division, which focuses on animated productions. "But the level of animation here has always been high and it has always been diverse." (2009) Fjeldmark follows his statement diligently, seeing his works, one could easily see he is incredibly flexible with his art to create a consistency with other animators.
