Like vikings? Dig animated short films? Then you’ll love The Saga of Biôrn!
The Saga of Biôrn is an animated short made by The Animation Workshop, a small independant studio from Denmark. The short was released in 2011, and can be watched for free on YouTube. Here’s a short synopsis of the flim from the official page:
Biôrn, an old Viking, is determined to reach Valhalla, the warrior’s afterlife full of excessive drinking and debauchery. To gain entry he has to die honorably in battle, but he discovers that the right death isn’t so easy.
As a Norse mythology and northern European history enthusiast, I absolutely love this short. It’s simple, funny, beautifully animated, and full of personality and charm that many feature-length films never achieve. Watch above, and tell us your thoughts in the comments!
