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.

Wow!

What fantastic imagery to tell the Gospel!

The whole Christmas tree covered by the sins of the world and such was very clever.

Excellent animation, I'm sure your church loved it!

Now that is something special

It's been a while since I have put a review up, but I just wanted to say you have done a very wonderful thing here. Stylistically, not everyone will appreciate the form, but it works very nicely for this piece and I strongly compliment the conviction it shows to keep in this style. Along with that you have a very nice level on the sound and there isnt a hitch in the animation at all. All compliments to your abilities.

Overall, message aside a very nice flash, but with the message, a breath taking one. Very nice work.
