THE OIL FUND – ZWART ARBEID / TVN
Animaskin did VFX, graphics and intro for this humorous TV show centered around the Norwegian Pension Fund, affectionately called Oljefondet.
The fund was created to invest the enormous amount of tax renevue from the Norwegian oil and gas industry. The fund is there to secure the future costs of pensioners and the socialist way of free health care amongst other things. The show follows some fictional investors working for the fund investing the billions and more billions according to the rules for ethical investments that the Norwegian politicians put in place. Following these complex ethical guidelines in a big cynical world of big business, creates some interesting complications. Currently the fund owns 1%, well, of the world.
