Shortday - To This Day

I'm starting a new funny name, I like o dedicate one day to my favorite shorts, animation, live action, stop-motion, anything good... so for now on, Saturdays will be Shortday.
And  to begin this recent Short that I really like it.... enjoy.

To This Day Project is a project based on a spoken word poem written by Shane Koyczan called “To This Day”, to further explore the profound and lasting impact that bullying can have on an individual.
Schools and families are in desperate need of proper tools to confront this problem. We can give them a starting point… A message that will have a far reaching and long lasting effect in confronting bullying.
Animators and motion artists brought their unique styles to 20 second segments that will thread into one fluid voice.
This collaborative volunteer effort will demonstrate what a community of caring individuals are capable of when they come together.
