Qvisten's 3D-animated, originally written film Just Super has been invited to the Berlinale's Generation Kplus program where it will have its international premiere.
With a script by Kamilla Krogsveen and directed by experienced director Rasmus A. Sivertsen and with character design by Carter Goodrich, the children's film and comedy Just Super has had a long and good life in Norwegian cinemas (admission 110.000) after its premiere on 30 September, before it will now charm audiences around the world.
About Just Super
11-year-old gaming enthusiast Hedvig finds her life turned upside down when she is forced to replace her father as the town’s superhero much earlier than expected.
But Hedvig is no superhero, and the challenges are far greater than her coaching father anticipated. He soon realizes focus must shift to his athletic nephew Adrian instead. Dejected and confused, Hedvig visits her grandmother. As she starts talking about the situation, the grandmother lights up, eagerly responding to her ramblings. An unlikely team emerges, and soon Hedvig is about to fulfill their family legacy without her father’s knowledge.
The Norwegian voices in the film belong to Hennika Eggum Huuse, Tobias Santelmann, Kari Simonsen, Atle Antonsen, Line Verndal and Henriette Marø and others. Producers are Åshild Ramborg and Stian Tveiten for Qvisten Animation AS. International sales agent is TrustNordisk and Norwegian distributor is Nordisk Film Distribusjon AS.
