Following a number of acclaimed live action short films, including “Little Match Girl” based on H. C. Andersen's saga, Swedish filmmaker Björne Larson released a teaser for ‘TROLL’, his four-quadrant IP in development based on the groundbreaking Scandinavian folklore universe, at Epic Games’ GDC'19 keynote ’State of Unreal,’ showcasing a game-changing real-time cinematic, directed by Björne, that raises the bar for digital humans and ray-traced scenes in Unreal Engine. The ’TROLL’ tech demo, produced by Deep Forest Films and Goodbye Kansas, features unprecedented levels of cinematic-quality lighting and uncovers the power of game engines by intersecting award-winning filmmakers, traditional pre-rendered pixel perfectionists and game industry pioneers.
