1. To This Day is a project based on a spoken word poem written by Shane Koyczan (http://www.shanekoyczan.com) 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 demonstrates what a community of caring individuals are capable of when they come together.

  2. Biking is not a picknick if you‘re sharing the road with a distracted driver. Sehsucht‘s
    animation shows the dangers of texting while driving. Messaging on his phone, our car
    driver doesn‘t pay attention to the traffic lights and oversees a pedestrian at a crossing.
    Distracted by the messages, he drives incautiously and runs into a young woman riding
    her bike. He calls an ambulance to take care of her injuries. In a parallel world in which the
    car driver does not text and drive he travels safely around the world. Our message is clear:
    Save a Life. Don‘t Text and Drive!

    The 3D animation is set in a very graphical, cubistic world. The style is defined through
    geometric shapes and a warm colour palette.

    To be honest – the idea for »Traveling Lights« came to us by accident. We were fooling around with geometric objects while developing a logo design. We liked the idea of combining simple shapes and then creating a completely new context, only by excluding intersecting shape areas. In our case – a circle and a triangle became the snowy top of a mountain in front of the sun. With this picture in mind we started developing a minimalistic world, brought to life by the use of ambient noise and a haunting minimalistic score.

    Take a moment and lose yourself in the abstract realism of this world.
