Cattaraugus County child records The True Meaning of Easter on YouTube

Nine-year-old Marcus Ethan Tom of Allegany has narrated a video for children and adults about the True Meaning of Easter, one of several he has completed and broadcast on YouTube during the past four years.

According to a website narrative at, Marcus, a son of Panvenni Films founder and director, Murphy E. Tom, expressed an interest in doing videos at the age of four, after seeing kids on YouTube doing toy reviews.

The film producer father decided to move ahead with his son’s desire in January 2020 and, because of the pandemic that soon followed, was able to dedicate even more time to helping his son create videos for YouTube that were different than the material that was dominating the social platform.

Thus, Planet Marcus, from a child’s perspective, was formed.
