Vancouver-based motion graphic studio, Giant Ant, took part in the making of an animation collaborative effort centered on the poem titled To This Day by Shane Koyczan, who was in charge of the We Are More poem used for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics [1]. To This Day focuses on the lasting impact of bullying on its victims, and though it feels heavy-handed with a +6min of running time with a narrative of negative lows in contrast to Koyczan’s climbing monologue, it’s still a project worth checking out because of…

it’s animation.

Giant Ant (which includes work by Jorge Canedo Estrada [1]) asked animators and motion designers to come up with 20-sec sequences to go along to Koyczan’s spoken poem, developing a wonderful mismatch of styles within its narrative.

My friend is super excited to be coming [1], so he sent me this video he ran into.

I did take a peek of the pizza in Cuzco I so want to have again. You know, it’s not very often I step on Cuzco.

I’m uncertain of the track, though, Fado by Galinhazz, some people say it’s kind of Spanish… maybe a little bit Flamenco-ish? I thought Arab. Maybe having to do with the Moors in Spain?

Over the years there has been some outstanding whiteboard marker illustration videos, like Drive: The Surprising Truth about what Motivates Us [1], Where Good Ideas Come From by Steven Johnson, or variations like James & Amy’s Electric Fence [MV] (drawn by James Cooper).

Spanish artist Pablo Morales de los Rios takes a look at the history of music and lays it out all on the table.

It’s a thing of beauty.

This, you have to admit, is pretty darn good-looking.

Psyop is doing a series — in all honesty, it’s only three webisodes — as prequel to a video game, and decided to do the animation by hand with some 3D enhancements.

Ahhhh… Tokyo. What I wouldn’t give to visit that once in a lifetime…
