A gospel filmmaker, Pastor Abiodun Soretire is set to release a weekly episode of cartoon video entitled, Jesustoons Short and Sharp.
In an interview session with Gospel Film News, Soretire disclosed that JESUSTOONS SHORT & SHARP SERIES will be a Saturday-Saturday 3-4-minute spiritual tonic. It will seek to quickly and profitably call your consciousness to matters we are prone to overlook or take for granted in the spiritual space, saying every episode will end with a positive message, prayer or prophecy for its watcher. Once in a while attempts might be made at humour to drive home salient points.
He further stated that: “One thing is sure, every episode will be a capsule of blessing and spiritual richness you cannot afford to miss. We have said it, and have always been proving it: animated cartoons are no longer child’s play. They have become part of our everyday life. So, whether you are young or old, male or female, melancholy or sanguine, conservative or progressive, a spoonful of JESUSTOONS SHORT & SHARP will do you good every Saturday. It will start airing from the first Saturday in the year 2022, January 1, 2022. Stay tuned. The YouTube channel remains Jesustoons TV (https://youtube.com/JesustoonsTV).”
According to him, the award-winning Jesustoons animations have been screened in international Christian Film festivals and one of the episodes, ‘I Am Judas,’ recently won the award as the best animation at the MZIAIF International Christian Film Festival.
