Father Gabriel’s Chapel

Published: December 13, 2021

I hope you enjoyed the third episode of my Father Gabriel Orthodox Christian cartoon series. Please share this page with your friends and families. It will help me a great deal to get more and more people to see my cartoons. Please also drop me a line in my comments section. Let me know if you have any questions or comments or if you just want to say hello. Just click on the comments tab to leave me feedback.

It has been a long time coming! The last episode was published way back in 2016! Wow! It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years! I am already working on the next episode so I am hoping to get it done within the next few months. God willing!

I’ve been working on Father Gabriel’s Chapel for the past 6 months now, and a lot of work went into finally finishing it. But it was really a labor of love and I enjoyed every minute of the creation process! I have created a Making of Father Gabriel’s Chapel video, where I go through the creation process of my latest Orthodox Christian cartoon.

Thank you for watching!

    I’ve already left you notes elsewhere on your wonderful animation….
    The beginning is a great shot, down in the grasses, then panning to just see Father’s head then whole body…very creative work!
    Thanks again for your countless hours of loving and fruitful creativity!

      Thank you always for your wonderful feedback Dean, it’s much appreciated! I’m glad you noticed the camera movements. Originally I actually had planned to make the whole animation one continuous shot. But in the end, I decided to split up the animation into multiple shots, it just flowed a lot better. Glad you enjoyed it!

    This is an amazing short film, congratulations on finishing!! So beautiful! I love Fr. Gabriel’s smile. It’s just so warm and loving. Thank you very much for sharing this. I wish I could go to the chapel! I know you just finished this film but I can’t wait to see more!!

      Thank you for your feedback Mary! Yes I would love to go to a tree chapel! If you do a quick search online for “Orthodox tree chapel,” you will find a picture of an actual chapel built inside of a tree. This picture captivated me so much that it was the inspiration for Father Gabriel’s Chapel. Thank you for watching and for your feedback!
