This is by far the longest animation I've ever done. Its a wopping 17 minutes long, worked on it for 7 weeks straight. Get some snacks and drinks, sit back, and enjoy the tale of a Boy and his Box.


Daily 3rd place, thanks newgrounds!

A whimsical storybook tale...

I really enjoyed the movie, especially the storybook narration (great voice actress); however, either at points the narrator's voice was too soft or the background music was too loud and it became a bit muddled (in my opinion - the background music was too loud; also perhaps a subtitle option next time?). One little thing: at the end in the golden tower, the narrator says the boy looks to his left (which is the viewer's left but the boy's right) and then to his right (again, it's reversed).

Amazing...Like reading a book.

An amazing tale, and story. Jenny has done an excellent job narrating, and I hope to seem more work from you, my friend.

So touching...

First of all your Author Comments is brilliant
"Get some snacks and drinks, sit back, and enjoy..."
At first I though it was going to be another neat musical of fantasy, like the
Adam phillips famous series "The YuYu". But as the story moves forward and characters are revealed espacially the part where a female gives the two guys hope (which was a very intellegent part) I noticed this unique and genius movie as it is.
Despite all I said the big surprise was at the end, the credits which showed me something which was a jaw opener - The fact that you wrote this amazing story!
I salute you! most impressive!
Your upcoming prizes: FRONT PAGE! AT LEAST 2th PLACE! 4.5! and 9.8! seek me if I'm wrong!

Untill next time!

Great work!

I enjoyed every second of this, the animation, the voice acting, the music, ALL OF IT! Keep up the good work. 5/5, 10/10.

This movie just had a good feeling to it, I just knew when I clicked play I was in for something great, and by the end of the movie I realized I was right.

The art style had me put off.

The art style had me put off for awhile, but this is a work of brilliance, it really is.

The storyline is a little dated, and the animation and art quality could use some work, just to make it a little better, but seriously, I liked it a lot. Make that 'tale for another time', I want to know what happens to Helmet!
