Jinas 1: A New Friend

Author Comments

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




Wow, uh make another!!!! I loved it!


Wow wow wow, I actually liked it, it looks nice and plays well, and the story is pretty nice as well, I hope to see the rest of the series in the future


Hey man lol i finally finished my homework and got round to watchin the animation :D its bloomin amazing! Love it love it love it. The whole animation is fantastic and the screenshots you showed give it no justice! Your art is amazing and the voice acting was immaculate! I also love the story. 10/10 5/5 and added to favourites =D

thanks alot!


That was actually really good.

Were you waniting to make this for a while? Because it was a magnificent storyline. I like the idea of a scarecrow traveling with some animals to a better place.
Good job! and God Bless!
(oh I love how you threw in that comic relief about the farmer seeing a Scarecrow walking and going "What the???" Terrific)

AloneInTheDark responds:

yeah, this entire thing is a story iv been wanting to tell for a while :) Before i even started animating I already had the plotline figured out in detail

Thats very good!!!!

The story is good and the players played there parts great!!! 10/10 5/5
