I get a fair amount of email from people hawking their projects. Most of them I find rather dubious and never get posted about. Sometimes though I get an apparent gem.
Here is a project from kathmedia in association with “The Aquinas Institute” (Wyoming).
In this “Year of Faith” kathmedia presents a catholic catechism like no other: The “3MC – 3 Minute Catechism”.
3MC consists of 72 hand drawn and animated episodes each 3–4 minutes long. Coming to you on 2 DVDs this series follows and explains the Creed adding in all four parts of the Catechism.
Easier and more difficult subjects are treated in separate episodes making 3MC a great introduction to the faith for the ages from 12 to 120.
Judging by one of the free episodes I previewed I really liked the quality of the presentation along with the content. While it was short it was not watered down and presented a complex question in easily understandable terms. The narration along with the animation worked well together to illustrate the point. I can’t speak for the whole series and how sound they are, but I really liked what I saw.
Here is the English version of the site and this page links to the German version and notes Italiano, Español, Français, Portugués versions are coming.
