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 well done. Nice concept for Santa's origin and very touching too. The most powerful part was when the shadows are moving to Jesus which, in my own interpretation, represents people's sins, and thus cleansing us from our sins so he died on the cross for our salvation. The background score of that part was very powerful too which could move anyone who'll be watching this. So I say perfect choice of music.

PS: Thank you so much for submitting this. This is honestly my niece's (my brother's daughter) favorite flash here on Newgrounds. She's still a baby and she behaves quite well when I play this flash for her. This is one of my favorites too.

Hope to see more videos from you
