To This Day - Animation & Kinetic Typography

This animation is breathtaking and emotional. The narration is a poem about bullying and the narrators experience with dealing with the hardships and the effects that come with being bullied. The moral of the video is that everyone who tells you that you are nothing, they are wrong. These words are so powerful, and the animation is as reinforcing as anything. It brings the poem to life in the best and worst ways. The video itself consists of hand-drawn, 2D and 3D animation, ranging in different styles and methods of animation.

Take some time to appreciate this, because the animation forces you to interpret the metaphors and imagery that is described by the poem as literal, and this can definitely help people who are feeling depressed or even suicidal. I wonder how many lives this video itself has saved?
