Jørgen Vestergaard made a number of shorter stop motion TV productions for children, mostly from fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen, before making late in his career a feature film, 'Snøvsen' based on stories by the word playing poet Benny Andersen. Here is a combination between puppets and live action people and it works well, since the puppet here is a non moving toy with life induced from children's imagination. That has worked before and it works this time, too, being the age before the introduction of digital effects changed filmmaking radically. This production is mostly for younger kids but the presentation is interesting enough to catch the attention of grownups as well, and the film spun a sequel however not up to the standard of the first film. Jørgen Vestergaard also made some documentary films, particularly one about the prolific Danish-Dutch Oscar winning film animator Børge Ring.
