Hey there Newgrounds, it sure has been a while since I uploaded anything substantial.

This is the tale of a young child and his imagination, based on the characters Allen and Merve created by my friend Jim Hort around 5 or 6 years ago when we were both in High School. I always liked the characters and wanted to tell some sort of origin story for the pair. Any meaning deeper then that you can decide for yourself.

This film was started over 2 years ago, first as a music video for a band, then after that fell apart it very much became its own thing. During the production of this film I have changed home 3 times, jobs twice, and god knows what other madness. I never want to take this long to complete anything ever again.

Heres hoping this film gets my butt back into gear and back on track with my film making.

Edit: Thanks for the front page Tom and Company <3

It was a touching little short to watch, but it was sad when he saw his mom as an evil dragon, even though she was trash anyway.

In retrospect they should have lived in a trailer.

That was innocent and entertaining, just like watching a cartoon. I really liked it.
I've always thought that everyone should always carry at least a little of their inner child, to enjoy the simple things in life. I'm glad to see that others think so too. 10/10, because I can keep making like a plane when nobody is watching.

Understood it completely. I also loved the music.
