Watch the animated short film project To This Day, and become fully aware of the ongoing tragedies caused by bullying. Based on the uncompromising poetic prose of Shane Koyczan, produced with the aid of Giant Ant, and stitched together by a multitude of submissions by artists from around the country. This is important stuff, more info after the jump.

More in-depth details can be read as follows:

“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.”
