Jack, a simple scarecrow, has been protecting the farmlands for as long as he can remember. Spending most of his time sleeping and daydreaming, he is shocked when his crow friend Tony has some big news. There might actually be someone like Jack far away and Tony guarantees it's worth the journey. Accompanied by the old rabbit Roy, the three set off to see if there really is more behind the horizon.

NOTE: the quality button works, but you have to wait till the movie is loaded if you want to toggle it to high quality (press button 2 times). Make sure you have 2GB ram if you watch it at high quality. The quality of the drawings greatly improves though

Some background info:
I know it has been over 2 years since i have submitted anything new. What happened? Well 2 years ago i started this project with great motivation, but somewhere halfway, after 5 months, i completely lost all motivation to draw and animate. This could have been done in 7 months or so but instead i took a 1,5 year break. I really needed it, to get away from it all for a while, to regain inspiration and motivation. I mainly focused on my study and social life and even though i made very little that period, i think i learned alot about art and animation by just watching and reading stuff. I plan to make a few smaller movies before i start working on episode 2 of this thing. This series is meant to have 5 episodes, but i sincerely hope the others won't take me 2 years each also lol. Anyway, Take care

Sweet work mate!

I am going through every movie from the video "Everything by Everyone"

what it is today. Keep up the good work!!!

This reminds me of the old Animated Movies...

Somewhat the style of those movies like Bella and the race against the clock ( If that's the official English Name, I've only seen it in Dutch XD)

The animations was great, even though It was a little bit low frame, but it didn't anoy me... I can't wait until the next one comes, even though that may still take another 2 years XD


Rated 5 / 5 stars


This was awesome, good animation nice story and really idyllic atmosphere.
But i guess there will be no Part 2 as this was added in 2007?

A breath of fresh air.

I thought it was very well done. Nice and low key, but with plenty of room to build. I especially loved the way the characters were done. Very dynamic. Looking forward to more.
