The Way of Hope is an animated short by Julien Dykmans. It is is an absolute work of computer generated art born somewhere deep within a master story-teller’s imagination and vision. It is a masterpiece. I watched the short through twice and then closed my movie viewer & browser to spend some contemplative time with my dependably strong and again confirmed conviction that the real thing is always - always - better than imitation. This is universally true in every aspect of life (i.e., Christianity, relationships, family, food, clothes, etc). Thank you Zebulon (Zebulon is the small travelling merchant featured in the animated short)! Go and vote for Julien Dykmans’s The Way of Hope at the aniBoom awards!
