To This Day is an animation based on the poem by Shane Koyczan’s spoken word poem of the same title. It is a poem about childhood bullying. The animation contains a 20 second animation collaboration from 87 different animators. It is absolutely stunning and it addresses many of the traumas that occur during childhood. It concludes by deeming the strength of the victim as beauty. The design is elegant complimented with an extremely well written piece of poetry; I tear up every time I watch it.
For the Style Frames Design Conference held last November in New York, Tel Aviv-based artist and animator Eran Hilleli was asked to create an opening titles sequence that would set the tone for the event and list the names of various speakers. The result is this short three-minute video of converging characters that’s almost too wonderful to describe. I’ve watched this at least 5 times over the last two months and every time it gives me chills. I wish this was a full-length movie, or more likely a video game, something more immersive to learn more about all the different creatures that appear so briefly. Music by Disasterpiece.
