What is G-dcast?
As defined on their site (G-dcast.com), "G-dcast is a place to watch cartoons based on the story Jews are reading in the Torah this week."
This week, I am the lucky narrator. I discuss the story of the Golden Calf, and my words are animated by the incredibly talented Nick Fox-Gieg.
In my discussion, I talk about the power of sight. The seriousness of the sin of worshipping the calf is only truly recognized when God and Moses see it with their own eyes.
This message about sight really hit home for me months after the initial recording, when I actually saw my words come to life through the animation!
A famous study at UCLA tried to answer the question, "What makes the most impact on an audience?"
The study revealed that only 7% of the impact comes from the words you say.
37% is the sound of your voice.
And a whopping 56% is what the audience sees when they listen to you. (stance, movement, visuals, eye contact, etc.)
So the key to making your content stick is to reinforce it with your body and your visuals - and especially with eye contact.
What makes G-dcast so powerful is the simultaneous audio and visual expression. Each reinforces and enriches the other.
