Task 4 – Kinetic Typography

Motion Graphics has developed into the realm of digital media and draws influence from both animation and graphic design. A study of the history of Motion Graphics reveals, for example, early work by Saul Bass in creating film title sequences. Typography provides a pathway into the complex world of contemporary Motion Graphics, and by using existing typographic font elements and animating them to a soundtrack it is possible to experiment with many aspects and dynamics of motion and emotion.

The Task

Use and develop your knowledge of AfterEffects to generate a sequence of no less than 20 seconds in which kinetic typography is used to accompany and enhance a soundtrack featuring voice. The soundtrack can be of your own choosing, but we suggest you use an extract from a piece of existing media. Try to avoid using any other graphic images other than pure type.
