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




Rated 5 / 5 stars

Top Notch!

Felt like I was in an old style child's book, right down to the style of the drawings. The voices were perfect, as was everything else!

top notch!! keep up the high quality work.

Newgrounds is chock-full of flash animations that are revved up for violence, speed, and action! A wonderfully "down to earth" flash animation is just what we need to balance it all out. You did a great job, and I really enjoyed it! Hope to see the next episode soon!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Thanks man. It's something that gradually came over the years. Watching a lot of good movies really helped me to see how to be effective in this area
