The Vikings


Design
Back to Explore a Viking Village

Certain streets in the model village were designed especially with filmmaking in mind. Notice the extraordinary attention to detail and the powerful sense you get of "walking" through the village at the eye level of a person scaled down 30 times in size. To get these sequences, the filmmakers spent three to four days filming the model.
