Hi everyone. This is my first-ever completed film, made for Newgrounds' Christmas 2008 collection.

It is about a young boy who dreams of journeying in Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve.

This might be a little soft-toned for Newgrounds, but I hope that some of you will appreciate it anyway. It took me about a year of intermittent work.

Some of the scenes are quite dark, so it is best viewed in dim or no light. Oh, and you probably need a fast computer for it to play smoothly...

Happy holidays!

As I said, it's really more like 1.5-2 months. Just spread out over a year.

Thanks for the kind words.

I liked it a lot

I'm not sure how you animated it, but I could tell it takes a lot of effort. Very well done.


Esn responds:

The artwork was drawn in ArtRage, and the images were saved either as GIFs (to save space without losing quality - mostly the backgrounds), or as PNGs (where transparency was needed around the edges of the image, such as the reindeer). It was animated in Flash by importing all the images into the library and making them into movieclips, and moving them around either with tweens or frame-by-frame modification.

Send me a PM if something's unclear.

Superb!

Great artwork, good choice of music for the tone, and interesting story. I'd really like to see more submissions done in this style.
On a side note, people don't seem to understand the story or get why a kid would dream that. But I mean, unless you're lucid dreaming, how often do you tell your subconscious "yo man, cut that shii out! i want to have a regular sleigh ride with santa, wtf!"
