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!

Almost good but...

Story is too long.You could make stop-play-forward-back buttons.
Or you could make it 2 parts.
Story was good.I liked.
Keep working ;)

uh, long in a bad way.

it's prophesied, not prophesized. The voice acting is really solid, but there's too much narration. Too wordy! it'd be fine if it was an audiobook, but as an animation it's tiresome. Why say "with a great big smile on his face"? It should be visible that he's smiling. If you insist, less adjectives, better words. make it into "with a grin,". The music worked really well, it made it less boring, and improved it by 3X. As for colour, I like how you restricted it a bit, but the gray in the cave wasn't dark enough, and it'd be even better if you gave it slight colouring. I also particularily love how I paused it and it went to the beginning. Not finishing it, sorry.

It wasn't terible

But, it wasn't that good either. It really bothered me how the music was louder than the narrator. The story was good, the animation very good, but if it's rated T then you can't expect anyone under 13 to watch it.

Not bad.

It was nice. Not too much wrong with it. The story was cute and I liked the character designs. I know a lot of comments have already pointed the issue with the volume levels, so I'll skip that. Another thing I noticed was a bunch of holes in the colouring and just some messy lines. I found it a little corny, but if it's aimed towards younger children that's not that big a deal. The biggest questions I have are: 1) What was up with the dreams? Those feel like they need explanation. 2) Why on earth is it rated T??? Overall, it wasn't a bad use of 17 minutes.
