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:

Also find us on Twitter and Facebook :)

That was pretty freakin' epic


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Really good. Although there is little voice-acting, the body-language of each character convey the dialogue perfectly.

You should go watch Sintel then: cKm3Jo&hd=1 just remember to set the quality to Original. Same genre.

Impressive. I really like the anime-like contrast between the background and the characters and simple animation mixed with a slightly more western drawing style. The music also sounds incredible, and I think it's neat that you managed to pantomime the entire story without any actual dialogue.

Unfortunately, the lack of dialogue also made the animation somewhat boring. With no way to strike subplots or expand on a character's behavior beyond body language, the story had to be summarized into a short(er) skit like this when it could have developed the characters a lot more and introduced more faces as well. Because of that, I am slightly displeased with how the story feels watered down.

This is really great, but the overall bore factor takes a great concept and makes it seem more like a bunch of animators just showing off for the sake of it, without any real point. The animation was not quite as smooth as, say, Katan or Bunnykill, nor was it as intriguing as Castle or Fallen Angel (where I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next). The magnitude of this animation is certainly wonderful, but it's just missing something.

Awesome animated short. Love the art direction, the mute dialogue, and the premise of the story. Really liked that facepalm moment after the credits. Really made me laugh how the reward was there all along even though the true reward was the journey itself. The only improvement I can see is smoother animation.
