Animated Inspiration: 'The Reward'

Here's a student film from Denmark's "The Animation Workshop", that has been making the rounds over the past few weeks: 'The Reward'.

The Reward from The Animation Workshop on Vimeo.

This is one of those films that carries within itself a positive message for all student filmmakers: an embodiment of the old cliche "It's the journey, not the destination". As we'll be entering the festival season here in North America shortly, I'm hoping that we get to see this film on the big screen as the students who created this film embark on their own grand adventure.

NOTE: Some sequences are slightly NSFW.

UPDATE (3/7/13): The creators of "The Reward" have just launched a Kickstarter campaign in the hopes of raising $115,000 in order to turn their nine-minute short into a series.
