The Troll Hunter is a sensational documentary which exposes the Norwegian government's monumental efforts to hide the news that trolls actually exists in Norway - and have done so for millenniums. This troll adventure needed a number of different trolls.  We produced the three headed troll and the furry trolls in the cave.  The films hand-held look proved to be a challenge when it came to integrating the trolls into the plates.  Also, a lot of footage was shot using a night vision camera that would blur, distort and otherwise degrade the image.  because of this, we had to degrade our troll elements to match the gritty footage.
