I love seeing student animation films, especially some of the ones that come out of The Animation Workshop in Denmark. Some real high-quality work is produced there, and this latest short film is no exception. The Reward tells the tale of two adventurers who snatch up a dropped map and embark on a journey for lost treasure… or whatever it is under the X on the map. The journey is long and storied, and – you know – just watch it. The animation is very well done and in particular I thought the character design was fantastic. It’s roughly 9 minutes long, so buckle in and click through to watch it.
