Entry Eight – Kinetic Typography

Typography

Typography is the art of text.  Text is important, not only is it the main and only component of subtitles that allow the hard of hearing to enjoy film and television, but it is used to reinforce points and key words you might want to put emphasis on. If you are making an advert or even fancy titles you need to be using this technique to illustrate these points quickly.

My Examples

Kinetic Typography is the art of moving text.  I have previously used this technique in several small projects;

The Nightmare Twins

Kinetic Typography – For Digital Film Production

For my main example I have made this small piece using the Pill monologue from The Matrix.  Using colour, text, and Adobe After Effects I have created Kinetic Typography to go over the audio.
