This is my storyboard panel for scene 5 from Sequence FL of “The Greatest Escape”, an stillborn direct-release-to-dvd animated feature. The movie is about the Nativity, as told from the P.O.V. of Cleangela, King Herod’s daughter. She is tasked with finding and ratting out the newborn king, but is overcome by her conscience. This is the background of the caravansary where the Holy Couple was able to find a manger to hang out in for the royal birth. My director/producer was Kevin Altieri. My primary source of reference was "Jesus and His Times", published by Reader's Digest Books. I happened upon this essential volume while visiting my family in Anchorage, Alaska, in 2009, for my mother's 80th birthday celebration/family re-union. This book happened to be on the shelf of the book case of my room at the wilderness hunting lodge I and my family were sequestered at. If that's not a sign from Heaven, I don't know what is. (I'm agnostic).
