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.

I don't know what to say to you.
That was truly phenomenal.

Looking at the comments I've found that I am one of the many who enjoyed this despite the fact that I am agnostic.

I credit how you get a message across to people of different religions.

Friggin' amazing. Most powerful animation on NG

This was very moving. It's amazing how all your flash's never score lower than 9. You are gifted as an animator

Another Masterpiece

This is the absolute, most beautiful flash I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. You're a very talented person. Coming out of nowhere with Final Fantasy A+ (which is still one of my favorite flashes to date), and since then, taking the craft by storm with amazing submissions. This one is, truly, the best flash I have ever seen. Warm, thoughtful, touching, well crafted and simply fantastic. It's also the first flash to ever make me cry.

I will be viewing this flash every year for Christmas, until my last days.

im not into all that christianity bullshit but jesus all mighty that was a great flash and a great way to express what christmas symbolizes as well as tweak the symbol of santa to more religiously based instead of corporate market based
