Recently I served as consultant for an animated dramatization of the last days of the second-century North African martyrs Perpetua and Felicity. It’s titled The Story of Saint Perpetua, and it’s the first in a planned series, Catholic Heroes of the Faith.

The animation’s getting rave reviews from folks I respect:

“Well done and quite inspirational! I was very impressed indeed, both with the historical accuracy of the content and with the entertainment value.”  — Rod Bennett, author of Four Witnesses: The Early Church in Her Own Words

“The scriptwriters did their homework well, and have produced a story with a high degree of historical accuracy. The artwork is also of a consistently high quality. The richness of the colors and the vividness of the character drawings are at times reminiscent of The Prince of Egypt and other Hollywood productions.”  — Carl Sommer, author of We Look for a Kingdom: The Everyday Lives of the Early Christians

Here’s a little news item on the video.
