Revolver – Här är karusellen
A short film about time.
An animated film by directors Stig Bergqvist, Jonas Odell, Martti Ekstrand and Lars Ohson. Swedish animator and director Stig Bergqvist originally embarked on a much different career – the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. He and his school friend Lars Ohlson co-founded FilmTecknarna, an animation and design company that allowed the entrepreneur to pursue his true passion. In 2000, he had his biggest project, where he co-directed the very successful Nickelodeon project “Rugrats in Paris: The Movie”. This film would be his only real smash in the US before returning to Stockholm for commercial projects.
