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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars


An elegant piece of work that speaks volumes without uttering a word. Of all of the really superb Christmas Flash movies submitted this year, this one is by far my favorite. Powerful stuff indeed. Baby Jesus is ceertainly pleased.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Very good, and I didn't get it at first but then I saw the end. This movie may not be the best but it's done really well. A good message for the Holidays.

Very Well Done.

I was extremely impressed by this submission. It was very well done and you should proud of yourself. It was a good story and you conveyed it very well.

Wow that was pretty cool how he turned into Santa Claus at the very end. Very touching. Hope to see more movies like this.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Truly wonderful.
At first I was terribly skeptical with the whole Nativity scene, I questioned what possible new angle could you take? What originality could still exist?
But this proved me wrong, and happily so.
The graphics were superb, very nicely detailed
The animation was good
The music was magnificent

The message was griping and touching, this has made my Christmas season all the brighter!

Thank you.
