District Two teacher Daniel Bryant has made an impact in classrooms by allowing students to be able to relate to discussions through animation.
After much success from his first animated series “Karate Dawgs,” Bryant released another inspirational animated series called “Boys of Valor” on July 2. The series displays situations where a team of brothers shows courage through different life situations while also teaching literacy and math skills along the way.
“Through my faith, I want to help younger people with self esteem issues and also help them find the courage to face any difficult situation,” Bryant said.
In the past, the series was shown on local television channels through Redstone Multimedia. Unfortunately, Redstone recently pulled from local networks, and continues to air only in Tallahassee.
“For my next project, I’m hoping to create an hour-long segment that focuses more on literacy and reading. I also would like to work with more local artists, musicians and school children,” said Bryant.
The “Boys of Valor” series has received five Doves, which is one of the highest awards given by the Dove foundation. Edwin L. Carpenter of Dove Foundation has given a positive review by saying, “the series is great for Sunday school or kid classes and is a tool for spiritual warfare.”
Also, Charleston mayor Joe Riley has taken interest in the series by signing and also purchasing a copy.
