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.

Once again, you've delivered another masterpiece. Top-grade animation and design as well as a wonderful story! I just don't know what else to say except, "Right on!" and "Merry Christmas!" Let us not forget why we celebrate Christmas: The day our Savior was born.

Awesome work!

This is Dr. Foxx...signing off...for now...

Very sweet

I was a little worried when I read that it may ruin my Christmas- when I saw it I understood what you meant, but even being atheist (like me) I think it is a wonderful story. I have recently been feeling angry at some of the hateful things done in the name of religion, but this has helped me calm down a bit. Because I really don't want to be angry.

This is a good way around the "classical", aka biblical version of Christmas nowadays.
You really have the heart of a good producer, or realisator at least. This cut with the cross was masterly made.

With FFA+, Shoo Fly, now this... It seems you have to make things for classes to make them great...
*grins* I hope you'll have an awfull lot of classes then, for it brings such quality animation !
