A week was spent on conducting afeasibility study. All tasks were completed despite a few hiccups which were encounteredthroughout the journey. Requirements follwed and it took five days to finish them. The Systemdesign delayed butit was finished in six days. Then followed the software design which lasted aboutfive days.
The testing part is the last thing we did and it took a day to be completed.Based on all this information, the Good Samaritan movie is feasible so it was designed as planned.ABSTRACTIn this project the old story of The Good Samaritan from the Holy Bible was made into a short movieusing Blender.

It plays in the same sequence as it is written on the bible and thecharacters in the movie all work perfectly.
LIMITATIONSThe movie only plays for a short period of time because there are a few scenes in this movie. Thetime was not enough for the whole movie to be made but given enough time, the Good Samaritanmovie would have been of a higher standard. Throughout the journey of production of the software,it came to light that team mates lacked skills of actually building the movie. The movie also doesn’thave any sound effects , or any sounds whatsoever so it may be a little harder for younger audiencesto understand .CONCLUSIONIn the end we produced a short movie that told the story of the Good Samaritan , although it maynot be up to par, we believe it won’t be hard for whoevers’ watching the movie to grasp themessage of the movie.
RECOMMENDATIONSWe recommed that this movie be improved by making it a bit long by adding more scenes to theplay. We also recommend other softwares to be used to improve the quality of the movie. Thequality of the movie may have been better if we were allowed more time to work on it, with all ushaving had to first learn how to use Blender before we could start on the movie.
