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.

Touching and beautiful. Sad we never saw anything else from you.

I admit it was kind of weird to bring Santa into this. Still, I appreciate any unique flash like this. It's one of the few pro-religious things ever made. Well, you did say you made it for your Church. Nice to know someone else goes to Church here. The music is so beautiful.

That's one white face. It's pretty unique for you. I wish you were more prolific. Whatever, this is beautiful. It's June, but this feeling can last all year.

This video have always made me cry since 2006. Great work!

I know you've been gone from Newgrounds for a while, but this is one of the most touching things I have ever seen.

i feel blessed what a wonderful gift indeed
