Animation, short film, commercials, video and visual presentations in Kiruna
In 2003 Magnus Fredriksson and Håkan Rudehill started making animated films together. Shortly thereafter Anton Raukola joined them and the film making activities grew larger.
In February of 2007 the studio Bortbyting was founded in Kiruna with the mission to create animation, short films, visualizations, commercials and videoproductions.
The name of the studio, which translates to Changeling, was taken from the children of trolls who, in folklore, was disguised by magic and left in place of a kidnapped human child.
