In the autumn of 2007, a team of Southern Adventist University's animation students set out to create a short film based on a simple parable. Intended to be completed during the course of a year, the project turned into a five year journey.
The result is 'Rock in the Road,' a twelve-minute animated mix of 3D and 2D animation that tells the story of strength of character in a faraway kingdom. Fed up with his lazy and selfish civilians, the King sets out a small challenge for his people. A young boy is faced with the challenge and triumphs in the test that values others.
