The Prodigal- concept sketches

Our animated short The Prodigal is finishing its festival run and can be viewed at:

We’ve also translated the film into over 40 languages, and are trying to put it into more.

While many of our concepts were made in paper cut-outs I managed to do a few exploratory sketches. Atmosphere and landscapes became characters in the film.

Ultimately we would like to create 37 short films. One for each parable.
We are trying to raise funds for the next two shorts.

21Martyrs short film- Concepts 1

For the past few months we’ve been developing an animated short film project about the 21 migrant workers who were beheaded for their Christian faith in 2015.

A still from the film released on Jan 15th 2015 showing the beheadings.

Here are a few exploratory concept sketches, inspired in part by Coptic and Orthodox Icons. We are trying to capture the emotion of the story with line, color and texture.
