Una llama en medio del camino... a Jr.canest blog... that's me, I drink orange juice out of a wine glass. And what about me? I'm a Bolivian Motion Designer (you know, animation, design, that kind of stuff) a lover of music, someone that wouldn't be here if it wasn't because of God's grace. PS. for awesomeness and cool videos I created Wine After Coffee. a vimeo channel.
It was awesome to be part of this project, from talking to shane about it, creating the call for entries to putting it all together, and it is my privilege to show this: 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.
HUGE thanks to all who pitched in. :)
Got the chance to work on this project at giant ant, bring it on animators, let’s make an awesome collective piece that has a message.
Written by Shane Koyzcan, and in his own words: To This Day”, is a spoken word poem, to further explore the profound and lasting impact that bullying can have on an individual.

"The shooting this morning really got me to thinking about where we as a nation are going. And I remembered again that even though the guy who did the shooting committed a horrible act, we have to remember that each one of us could be in that guys’ position if it wasn’t for the grace of God in allowing us a better family or better influences as we grew up. As the number of shootings rise quicker and quicker, the question we have to ask ourselves is not "how many laws can we put in place to keep people from doing things like this?" It should be obvious to those who have actually considered these things that human nature does not listen to laws and cannot be controlled by them - there HAS to be a change of heart."
Here goes to a crazy one, the man that helped me find what I love doing… Here’s to my brother:
Ah sido un camino largo, pero Dios te arrastrado hasta aqui, y viejo, no se como fregados lo haces pero te sigo admirando, sigues siendo mi mejor amigo, mi hermano de sangre, hermano chido loco y revolucionario, y hermano en nuestro salvador Cristo. Te amo un buen, hoy te graduas y no saves que orgulloso estoy, ahora si te dejo, el tec te deja con tu locura. Dios te guie y guarde bro. Felicidades, enserio.
deja que suba al cielo de los caprichos
deja brotar la fuente de los prodigios
deja que corra el aire
que llegue el día
que encuentre paz el fugitivo
deja que mi locura y yo
corramos el peligro
te digo deja
deja te pido
Got the chance to direct and animate this project for Lumos here at giant ant.
Global Natives brought us in to help craft the story of Lumos as part of a re-launch they were orchestrating.
The story is voiced by Lumos founder J.K. Rowling and aims to shed light on the issue of childhood institutionalization in Europe.
