NEW YORK, NY â€“ November 16, 2010 â€“ FilmTecknarna (
), the storytelling and design studio with headquarters in Stockholm and offices in New York, recently added Barcelona-based director collective Bungalow to their roster.

Bungalowâ€™s versatile skill-set includes live action, still photography, illustration and animation â€“ which they frequently combine in unique and unexpected ways. Bungalowâ€™s design-driven work includes a spot for Audi, which fuses graphic illustrations of nature and live cinematography with animation. Another recent Bungalow project for MTV Canada spot features three aspiring teenage graffiti artists spraying a wall with black paint, that erupts into a towering animated ominous creature.

Stockholmâ€™s FilmTecknarna was created by Lars Ohlson, Jonas Odell, and Stig Bergqvist out of their common passion for graphic art and animation. The trio fueled their passion by designing, creating, and illustrating a long list of film projects, seamlessly migrating into Swedenâ€™s fledging commercial market in the 1990â€™s. FilmTecknarnaâ€™s impressive body of work includes a series of high-profile and award-winning films, music videos, TV series, and commercials for both the Nordic and international markets. The firm naturally evolved into a storytelling and design production studio, creating classic 2D animation, CGI, and 3D animation, as well as live action.
FilmTecknarnaâ€™s directors are Jonas Odell, David Nord, Johanna Andersson, Jessica LaurÃ©n, Boris Nawratil, Stig Bergqvist, Jonas Dahlbeck, Jory Hull, Lucas Zanotto, Arvid Steen, Bold Faces, Jasmin Jodry and Bungalow. In the United States the company is repped by Judy Wolff (East Coast), Hilly Reps (Midwest), Saarinen (West Coast), LP Reps (Southeast) and Hesty Reps (Canada).
