Hi everyone. This is my first-ever completed film, made for Newgrounds' Christmas 2008 collection.

It is about a young boy who dreams of journeying in Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve.

This might be a little soft-toned for Newgrounds, but I hope that some of you will appreciate it anyway. It took me about a year of intermittent work.

Some of the scenes are quite dark, so it is best viewed in dim or no light. Oh, and you probably need a fast computer for it to play smoothly...

Happy holidays!



Rated 3 / 5 stars

It was decent...

Well animated considering the original art style, and the overall design was very pleasant to look at. However, it wasn't that interesting to watch. It needed to either be more of a child experiencing Christmas, or have some sort of story. You know, conflict and resolution.

It's a solid submission, however, and I would encourage more and more work from you in the future.

I did intend for there to be a story as well as conflict & resolution, but obviously not everyone got it. Some of the previous reviewers did, though.

too dark

It has nice drawings, and it's a decent flash in all, but I had to adjust my monitors brightness to its full (and the contrast too) to see it porperly and that makes it less enjoyable.

Esn responds:

Like I said, don't watch it if the sun's still up. The light reflects off the monitor and the colours get washed out. If the monitor's in darkness or dim light, the colours are bright enough.

the problem is... this is to dark!!! i can't view the animation the most of part!

Esn responds:

Sorry about that. Try viewing it at night in a dark room; the colours become a lot more visible.
