Director's Comments

Based off the Bible story, this is based on the Prodigal Son parable. I made this over the past week for a school project, and so it was a bit rushed, especially since I haven't brickfilmed in months. I'm happy with it, to an extent. Hopefully this signals that I'm coming back to brickfilming.

Staff Review

"The Prodigal Son" takes the well known bible tale and retells it in a simplified manner. While there is nothing here that one would call spectacular, the animation is fairly smooth. The narration and voice-work do their jobs as well. All in all, this is a good short that is worth a minute of your time.
