Gift of Ages is an animation I made in about a week and a half for my church's Christmas program.

Ah, there's so much to say about this one, but I somehow feel that explaining it will make it weaker. I should hope that the piece is strong enough to stand on its own without my having to prop it up with words.

And so for some of you I might have ruined Christmas. But to everyone else, I hope you've enjoyed this presentation and that it brings new meaning to the secular symbols we see annually.

Programs used: Flash 8, openCanvas, 3D Studio Max, and Sound Forge. All 3D work was done by my brother Brian (thanks!), and the music is Chopin's Etude in E major Op.10 No.3, as heard in the OST for Fullmetal Alchemist.

Very, very nice

This was a beautiful little short. Great piece of storytelling, and the imagery and symbolism was spot-on. You got the music from Fullmetal Alchemist, didn't you? Could use a credit on that, but asides from that, great piece.

Classy.

I'm not religious or anything but this is a really great cartoon with a unique style, you did a great job. I obviously dont have to say that the graphics were brilliant, but the storytelling was very well judged, it gets the message across without being preachy. Nce.
