★ 5Qs with Wolf Soto

Today I had the honor of interviewing a dear friend and one of the industry's best, Wolf Soto. Wolf has unleashed his God-given creativity in such forms as Stage and Costume Design, Print Design, Photography, Videography, and Traditional Media. If you have seen promotions for "Oraia" an amazing Spoken Word artist, (View) viewed Pastor Chris Durso's Blog "Mind of a Misfit" (View) or watched the "Red Army" Promo on YouTube® (View) then you have seen Wolf's wealth of talent. Currently, He Works on the Production team at Christ Tabernacle and is the founder of "Red Army Media." (Click www.redarmymedia.com)

Rob: Hey Wolf. It's great to talk with you today.

Q1: Tell me a little about yourself?

Wolf: I was born in Brooklyn, New York and at the age of 1, my family moved to the South Bronx where I was raised by my Puerto Rican grandmother, Rosalia and mother Raquel. Growing up in the ghetto of the South Bronx was rough. We didn’t have much money, but that helped me look at life from a different angle. Poverty inspired my creativity! Whatever I couldn't afford, I created a substitute for it, so my art and music was and still is my escape from poverty and pain.

I praise God from where all creativity flows

Rob: Wow that's a great outlook. God has truly gifted you.

Q2: When did you first realize that you wanted to do this?

Wolf: Well I got really fed up with pop culture dictating
the way we should think, speak, and believe.
As christians we're called to stand out from among the rest; We should be the ones setting the trends in our culture!

Rob: When I attended ReLoad at Christ Tab, I was in the workshop called "Reaching a Generation of Creators, Thinkers, and Misfits" with Pastor Chris and I raised my hand spoke almost those exact same words. I too am sick of the arts being used to lead people away from God and little by little we are changing that.

Q3: What do you feel is your strongest asset?

Wolf: I guess that would be creativity and helping people.

Rob: true.

Q4: What would you like to be known for?

Wolf: I want to be known as someone who gave it all for Christ and wasn't afraid to take chances.

Rob: definitely.

Q5: Why Red Army Media?

Wolf: Let me start by saying I do not support socialism or communism... Lol
I chose Red because it sybolizes the blood of Christ and Army because that's the way I see christians as one huge army. Media is what we do.


Rob: Cool. Thanks Wolf! It was so nice talking with you. This has been the first, but not the last of "5Qs." Keep checking "My Ink Pad" for more Satellite Interviews with the best in the industry!
