iClassics.tv releases video adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" from Illustrated Classics series

Miami-based educational start-up combines graphic novel artwork with audiobook-style narration, music scores and animation all in one downloadable video file.


PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 9, 2013 - MIAMI -- What happens when you marry a graphic novel with an audiobook in video format?  Miami-based has done just that and claims the result is an engaging, entertaining multi-media production that harnesses the strengths of both auditory and visual learning.

The company offers a unique approach that combines illustrations with narration and animation- all in a downloadable video file. This is the iClassic.tv’s fifth classic literature release. Other titles launched include "A Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry as well as three works by Edgar Allan Poe.

For "A Christams Carol," the company licensed the artwork and text adaptation from the Illustrated Classics series from Saddleback Educational Publishing.

“We thought the Saddleback product was excellent and a perfect fit for our illustrated video or ‘motion comic’ approach. It was meticulously adapted using Dale-Chall vocabulary system and the essence of the original masterpiece was well-preserved,” remarked Stephen Conley, Founder of iClassics.tv.  “We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel as this adaption is already respected by teachers and educators. We simply built on top of it with our narration, music, animation effects and general video know-how.”

Conley is also Founder & Creative Director of Gisteo.com, a video production company that produces animated marketing videos for businesses world-wide. “There’s no doubt that video can be a powerful medium to engage people,” said Conley. “Regardless or whether you’re a high-powered CEO or a middle-school student, people simply retain more information and comprehend video better vs. just reading alone. We’ve created nearly 450 videos for companies around the world and we thought we’d put our experience to work in the educational field.”

The company says that the initial reviews of "A Christmas Carol" have been excellent. “A couple of teachers even told us that their students were ‘mesmerized’ when they played our video in the classroom," said Conley. In this day and age of video games and short attention spans, I consider this quite a compliment!”

iClassics.tv is selling video download directly on its site for $2.99.
