Ah, Carousel, it seems you never can resist criticizing religion whenever you can. And you've even suggested that Pritchard's film might be racist while you're at it. However, I do enjoy reading those comments, actually.
But the story really does sound rather ridiculous. In fact, you'd probably be ridiculous to not think that it sounded ridiculous. And the plots in religious stories heavily rely upon deus ex machina, though, there are some rather clever things in there. I particularly wish that having a single character be simultaneously three characters so I could use it in a story of my own and then feel really clever about myself for having come up with the idea myself.
Still, some of the best stories sound ridiculous. Even some of the ones that are true.
On to the film, it's really good. The creative way of interpreting and showing this old tale which has been told so many times that it begins to feel a tad stale brings a new and delightful freshness to it. Though I feel like the idea itself was more deserving of a bigger film, maybe a few minutes long, and with no narration, but with more stuff to tell the story wordlessly. Of course, this was made for a short contest, so that all makes sense. It's also a bit weird how the figures are instantly cleansed, which is my only shortcoming from the animation which is of great note. There should be some sort of transition there, perhaps the colour moving into their body, or perhaps more simply a single transitional frame of a pure grey minifigure. Very impressive work with that dolly shot, though. I particularly like how the cross enters the frame at just the right time.
It a good film which makes me feel good. Very good job.
