My Last Day (Animated)

This is an anime recreation of the crucifixion of Jesus as witnessed by the thief who crucified with Jesus.  It is the same man who was told that he would be with Jesus in paradise that same day (Luke 23:43).


A few years ago, in Budapest, colleagues brainstormed an idea for creating a Japanese “Anime” version of Jesus’ story. We met with former Disney animator, Barry Cooke who loved the idea. My role was very small, but after various scripts, music and concepts. HERE IT IS!

At one point it was the story of Jesus meeting the “Demoniac.” Eventually, we decided the first story would be about Jesus’ death and resurrection.
