The movie is based on author Jo Nesbø´s best seller "Doctor Proktor´s Fart Powder". A book that many children (and parents) love dearly.
We follow the main characters Nilly and Lisa in their weird and wonderful world. Nilly is new in the neighborhood, but soon becomes friends with Lisa and the eccentric professor Doctor Proctor.
The professor´s latest invention is a powder that makes you fart, but leaves no smell. The powder makes Nilly and Lisa extremely popular at school when they start
selling it. When an industrial strength version of the powder is made, and gets stolen by an evil master mind (mostly evil, not too clever though) things get a bit out of control.
Director Arild Fröhlich has done a great job of bringing this story to the big screen. The movie had a fabulous opening weekend and has received great reviews.
The movie has brilliant visual effects that fit the cartoonish feeling of the film. Pixomondo are a kick-ass vfx house!
I had the pleasure to do the final online for the feature, which included making a number custom transitions between scenes, clean up work, graphics and some last minute compositing. This movie really made me laugh! Farting on film IS funny, especially when the acting, the visuals and the sound design is executed this well.
