  • About

    Drops is an experimental watercolor short film dealing with the concept of life and death.

    Through this production, the team behind Drops created a new IP combining watercolors and a funny story targeted to children in order to tackle a most serious aspect of life; Death. The film was premiered at Viborg Animation Festival 2016 together with an exhibition/installation at the Skovgaards Museet, Viborg, themed "The Spirits of Nature". 

    Project start date: 1 February 2016

    The Skovgaard Museum

    Website

    The Skovgaard Museum is the only art museum in Denmark, which is dedicated to the artistic heritage of one family - the Skovgaard family. It is housed in a landmark heritage building, in the old 18th century town hall, right in the very heart of Viborg. Here, right next to Viborg Cathedral, works by four generations of the Skovgaard family and their contemporaries are displayed alongside related contemporary artworks. Between 1901 and 1906, Joakim Skovgaard, along with a number of assistants, decorated the walls and vaults of the cathedral with 51 frescoes. He returned in 1912 to 1913, in order to add a new ceiling decoration, this time using oil paint on wood, replacing Lund's original ceiling. The result was the most comprehensive architectural decoration ever created in Denmark, an extraordinary and innovative artistic feat that to this day stands as one of the masterpieces of Danish art.
