I rarely post videos, but I think this one is a must see for everyone.
I could tie it to writing. I could talk about the beautiful way Shane Koyczan blends words together, the cadence and the power of his voice. How to build a character in just a few words. The pace of the story as it ebbs and flows, yet constantly builds to a climax. The way the illustrator finds the heart of the story and showcases that heart with incredible imagery. The power of the combination of words, music, graphics and pauses.
But I won't.
It's much more powerful than that.
I know it's 7 minutes, but it might just change you. Trust me - it's worth it.
Get a better mirror.
They were wrong.
