“Dog In Heaven” (Hund i Himlen) by Jeanette Nørgaard

Director Jeanette Nørgaard is posting her powerful award winning film, Hund i Himlen (Dog In Heaven) online today. I highly recommend you make time for it.

Hund i Himlen is a 25-minute animated short with stylized visuals and strong dramatic storytelling. It will be avaliable with subtitles on it’s own webpage (through Vimeo), along with a great behind the scenes page explaining the entire process of making the film. Nørgaard tells us about the film:

“It’s targeted at kids, but as any good fairy tale it also touches adults.Earlier this year it won the main prize at Denmarks biggest short film festival “Odense Film Festival”. It has been broadcast on Danish television and has toured festivals for the last half a year. I feel the time is right to make it available for everyone interested to enjoy it.”

Here’s the trailer (below) – check out the whole film here.

    This was amazing! My only problem is the style of subtitles, they were so faint sometimes I could barely read them. But other than that, man what I really powerful story. And great designs too!

    That was the best animated film I’ve seen in 2012.
