The main characters are Vito and Wilhelm which names mean full of life and strong-willed warrior.

We are developing The Reward into a series (along with a comic and DnD campaign book) you can see the now finished campaign at:

The Reward was made at The Animation Workhop. It is directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjer, Bros for life. See end credits for the team :) We now made Sun Creature Studio, a company made to bring you more series and films like this (Together with Bo Juhl). For more about The Reward:

Rated 5 / 5 stars

What can I say that has not already been said. This is simply put, a masterpiece. You guys did brilliantly. If I wasn't scrounging for food money just to eat regularly you'd have a donation from me for sure!

I'm amazed you could put together such an incredible world of depth in scope with just a mere 9 minutes and no dialog. Hollywood should come to you guys to get lessons.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is a amazing animation, the theme of adventure is soo strong here and it's distinct visual style is jaw droppingly gorgeous. I teared up a bit at one part, because the characters right off the bat were so easy to relate to. I couldn't bare to see willhelm in pain. I love this short film and even though it's message is "journey matters more than destination" type of fare, it's done in a very better way and hits the message right on the nail.

Astonishing. The artwork was spectacular, coupled with an engaging, easy to relate to story. I don't think I can find anything negative to write about this.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I first saw this a few months ago, and it completely blew me away. It's incredible how rich a world and detailed a story you were able to make with no dialogue whatsoever. Basically, this is incredible and I will follow the work of those that made this.

The only thing needs improvement is that you're female side characters were a little flat.
