The directors have found success locally and at film festivals. They are the founders of the Dutch comedy group New Kids.

They had won awards at Austin’s Fantastic Fest, like Best Feature and Best Director.
Svalta will see Nick Frost and Lena Headey reunite since 2019’s Fighting with My Family. The comedy-drama followed a family owning a wrestling organization. It was directed and written by Stephen Merchant. It starred the Hot Fuzz and Game of Thrones stars with Dwayne Johnson, Vince Vaughn, and Florence Pugh.
