The collaboration between Volda Univsersity College (VUC) and Ulstein Group in Ulsteinvik continues to reap benefits. «Frankulstein», a film made by students and staff at VUC, has now been accepted into one of the world's biggest and most prestigious animation festivals, Zagreb 2015.

It's been accepted into the Commissioned Films section, so fingers crossed for a good result in June, says Andres Mänd, one of the producers at Volda University College.

Frankulstein is a result of a cooperation between Ulstein Group and Volda University College. This is one of two films from the cooperation. The animation technique used for Frankulstein is Stop Motion.


In Ulsteinvik city, at the top of the mountain is perched a dark castle where the ambitious Doctor Frankulstein and Egon, his odd assistant, are building a new creature ... Machines are trembling, sparks fly, the laboratory is in effervescence. Frankulstein at the height of his joy is finally realizing his dream.
