Kaptein Sabeltann (Captain Sabertooth) is Norway's most famous pirate. The man who created the character, Terje Formoe, has built an entire empire around his gold-seeking captain of the high-seas. Kaptein Sabeltann has his own theme-park where thousands of families flock to see the spectacular pirate show in the southern Norwegian town of Kristiansand. Back in 2011 I graded the first TV-drama from this universe. 26 episodes of pirate-adventure for kids.
This year the captain returns in full cinematic glory. A kind "Pirates of the Caribbean" for younger kids.
We follow the orphan boy Pinky who follows the Captain on an exciting, dangerous journey across the vast oceans to the kingdom of Lama Rama.
There they hunt for a legendary treasure and the answer to who Pinky's father may be.
The movie features spectacular filmic images, vfx and sound design. Great fun for all the family.
International sales have been great. The film has been sold to a large number of territories.
I did the final Online for the feature, which included rig-removal, graphics and last minute fixes.
The movie had an incredible opening weekend and is still doing well at the cinemas.
