If you’ve got ten minutes to spare, grab some popcorn, fullscreen this video, and watch “The Reward,” an absolutely stunning 2D animated short. Directed by Mikkel Mainz Ekljær and Kenneth Ladekjær in collaboration with Glenn August, Jonas Andreassen, Josefine Hannibal, Karen Bennetzen, Ole Christian Loken, Paolo Giandoso, and Tanja Nielsen, “The Reward” was a Bachelor Thesis project at The Animation Workshop in Denmark.
This making-of video is almost as fascinating as the film itself.
There’s more over at the website for the short. I hope the crew stuck together after graduating because I’d love to see much more from them.
