And Now a Word from God
G-dcast aims to breathe new life into the old tales of the Old Testament, using fun and artful animation, hip storytelling and unique guests. Though produced from a Jewish perspective, and aimed at Jewish teens, the series should be great for any religious viewers, regardless of their specific faith, if the opening episode is any indicator:
Pronounced "Godcast," the title is written with a dash since that is how some Jews write God's name in English. I should also clarify that I don't think you have to be some kind of crazy religious fanatic to appreciate these videos. I think any spiritually-minded individual may find something of value here.
A new episode will come out each week, released on Mondays, and will feature storytellers from around the world, hip-hop artists, country western singers, and many more.
The opening episode has some nice writing with clever witticisms disguising some deep thoughts. The effect is to make them accessible to a wide audience, while entertaining viewers at the same time. Kudos to series creator and New Media maven Sarah Lefton on a clever concept, well executed!
