For those who haven’t seen the Bachelor 2013 animations from the students of The Animation Workshop should go watch all of them now! One of our personal favorites (all of them are but this one is the best), “The Reward”, was directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjaer.

The Reward Animation - Directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjaer

It’s a 9 minute animation of…wait wait we don’t want to give it away! It’s so epic you’ll just have to see for yourself…we’re going to watch it again! What we will say is that it’s a brilliant blend between great design, story telling and atmosphere. Well done to the team of this amazing animation, two thumbs up for a great short animation!
