Hi there everyone! It took me well over an hour to find out how to change my comments here, I finally made it. First of all I would like to thank each and one of you who are writing reviews here. I have spent all day keeping updated and I am sorry I have not been able to answer any of your comments, it would just take the rest of my life. As this field has a restriction of max 4,096 characters I will take the opportunity to answer one frequent question. Why does Nim hang the key outside his door? This is some of the Swedish mentality, we have always believed in truthfulness. And if you can not trust a stranger that grabs the key from the hanger to enter your house, then who can you trust? Today, I am sad to say, this mentality is just a pale shadow of its former glory. But Nim still believes in it.
And again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time and efforts, I do read all the posts, and I do listen to all kinds of criticism.

Happy flashes are rare in the portal, and it's rather nice to see that some of the best flashes are the happier ones. Outstanding artistry. Everything from Nim to Russ, the horse, the forest... everything was well drawn and drew me in. The pink camels threw me off, but it definitely established the fact that Nim was dreaming. The animation was fluid and crisp. The smallest details weren't overlooked. From the sleeping giant, to Russ's breathing, to the smoke from the stacks, it all flowed extremely well. The music selection was superb. It really established this rural, easygoing theme that permeated this flash. I do have to admit Mr. Flannigan's music has a slight Celtic tone to it, which seemed out of place in a Sweedish film. Still, it was fitting.

Beautiful storytelling, and great use of tweens on the lanterns and the sled. I can imagine how long it must have taken you to put this together. ^^
