A boys night light prevents his dreams from being intruded by monsters and turning them into nightmares.... until now.

3 months work. I liked this idea because it allowed me to get really creative with characters and backgrounds. Its been fun to work on but I'm glad its finally done.

Edit: Thank you very much for daily third and the great feedback, its all much appreciated.

That was beautiful nostalgic presentation! You've managed to accomplish in under three months with vivid detail friend! Your style is so very reminiscent to animation almost long gone and barely even ventured, unless you happen to be the next John K. now (Just joshing buddy!). Your us in audio was fascinating too. I've heard some of those tracks before too since I play alot of nostalgic video games. But What really won me over was your use of animation and a simple story told about a child overcoming his fears and nightmares. You brought a good interesting topic and subject that always rings in the mind. The power of night terrors or the psyche of a child is very important in the healthy development of children. Everyone at a certain age fears the dark (Not the darkness itself but what resides within the darkness) and depends on protections against such malevolent forces in order to quell their innocent minds. Night terrors can be associated with this topic to a certain extent but nightmares was more of the subject manner of this short here. Your protagonist a lone child felt icy chilled fears envelop within his mind and young heart. Yet he strummed up the courage to overcome his fears and put them back in his place. What felt like a bit of lucid dreaming in the end where he regains control of himself and peace of mind in order to fend off the darkness from whence they came. it was pure classic and grade A topic in my book! For that I'm going to bestow you a 4 in a half out of 5. And a 5/5 in voting power. Keep practicing, creating and contributing here. I hope you've enjoyed this review as I have enjoyed this short. Good day.

I very much did, thank you very much!

That's what goes around in a childs mind when it's dark and it doesn't know what happens. I wish more kids would have such courage to make the hunter the hunted in their dreams.

Awesome movie. The music rocked, the animation was smooth. All around 10/10 for me. Great work! :D

The graphics were good and the concept of the story was great. It was almost like an art animation instead of an animation between a boy and his nightlight. Also, the music was good with the pixelated things...and that...

Good stuff.

Reminiscent of the trench monsters scene in the SpongeBob movie.
