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:

And the adventure continues!

Great movie! Quality animation, funny yet interesting, original and heart-warming.

Very rewarding to watch, in part but especially in full, seeing as the characters both develop slightly.

My hat's of to you, great job! Also, funny Wilhelm scream.

Maybe something for the future: adding a bit more story and depth, a more serious adventure.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

wow. i shouldn't have to go into detail about this. this is a masterpiece of a short film.

the pacing, the concepts, the premise, the characters, the actual designs of the world and the creatures are all perfect. the entire idea behind the film is beyond inventive, and its honestly something i haven't seen much of in a story.

what impresses me most about this amazing tale is that it involved no dialogue. it used the framing, the actions, and the amazing designs to tell this story of brethrenship, adventure, the reward in living life, and even just basic slyness. this is a timeless and perfect story.

there was not 1 flaw with this flash. a perfect, and arguably untopplable flash. let this be an example to all of the hacks who get the awards this flash did. let them see that there are better things in the world than shitty facial reaction.

this is by every account, a masterpiece.
