Qvisten Animation is looking for a Leader for Film & Drama Series

Qvisten Animation is expanding internationally with their film and drama series, and searching a leader to make this expansion successfully.  

Qvisten Animation is one of the leading Nordic animation studios. We aim to gather and entertain the whole family and at the same time tell emotional stories with depth and educational value.

About Qvisten

In 1994, two guys in their early twenties founded an animation studio in Oslo, Norway. The only office space they could afford was a small, drafty attic. In Norwegian this is called a “kvistloft”, so the name Qvisten pretty much gave itself. They defined three goals: become as good as the legendary animation studio Aardman Animations, create a music video for their Danish musical heroes D:A:D, and at one point of time, in the distant future, create their very own feature film. They also had a clear vision: Qvisten should create content that captivates, activates, engage, and thrills kids – Qvisten´s characters should become a part of their childhood.

27 years later, Quisten have reached most of their goals and the vision is still burning bright: Qvisten shall be a source of great childhood experiences and memories on several different levels – films, TV, games, learning and theme parks. “We´re not located in an attic anymore, and two young guys have become two seasoned Producers with around 70 excellent artists and colleagues. Each of us work relentlessly to make great stories and amazing experiences. Every single day”.
