Blake Harris 12.30.2015

Every week since the beginning of July, we’ve been selecting outstanding animated videos that inspire, entertain and educate us about the power of the medium. That’s why in addition to providing background information on the video and its creator, we like to break down each video so we can learn from our admiration.

With the year coming to an end, let’s look back at our PICKS OF THE WEEK in 2015:
