The main characters are Vito and Wilhelm which names mean full of life and strong-willed warrior.

We are developing The Reward into a series (along with a comic and DnD campaign book) you can see the now finished campaign at:

The Reward was made at The Animation Workhop. It is directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjer, Bros for life. See end credits for the team :) We now made Sun Creature Studio, a company made to bring you more series and films like this (Together with Bo Juhl). For more about The Reward:

An excellent storyline altogether. Many think there is a reward at the end of their journey in life, but sometimes, it's the journey that is the reward.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


In a ten minute film with no words you got a message through that most 3 hour movies don't.
You can see how the characters grow and at the end you feel connected to them even without the uttering a word. The story is amazing.

I loved the art style which reminds me a lot of the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and I kinda got lost in that and at first the film felt so secure and then came the scene with the cutting of the fingers and that illusion broke. You could almost feel his pain.

Anyway great work!

Rated 5 / 5 stars


I loved this film from the moment my eyes saw the beautiful lighting, the fading and smooth shades of color, and that amazing touch of sketched art mixed with that of a professional. The characters were not exactly proportional, but with the drawing style, they didn't really need to be.

Gosh dangit I wish this was extended a bit. The plot has indeed, been done before. But with the way this animation played out, it fit perfectly. The best part was that the characters didn't talk- as they didn't have to. You could develop their personalities in your mind based off of their movements and expressions, their demeanor and behaviors. And in the end, both of these characters teach a valuable moral through their story.

Sure, you could have the most beautiful art in the world. But that doesn't mean a thing if that art doesn't have meaning. And this my friend, has meaning.
