Kinetic Typography – Outcome

After a few hours of playing around with the software the below video is my attempt for this production task.

I feel that this brief has given me a vital chance to get to grips with the basics of After Effects, hopefully some that I will be able to use in the future as I enjoyed mixing different elements together and experimenting with the different usage of keyframes to control the animation.

After completing this task I decided that I wanted to develop a new one based on a new soundtrack which would let me to demonstrate in a more effective way a piece of kinetic typography, using a more diverse range of technical skills. I thought that the set Gravity soundtrack was quite limiting to what could be done with it, it also was based on a conversation which was tricky to represent with words alone.

The new audio that I decided to use was the song ‘We Are Young’ by the band fun. for a lyric video because I thought that I could make more of a connection to the words on both screen and the audio and demonstrate some more technical skills with the After Effects software.

After having an introduction to this piece of software and style of video design I feel that I can use this in future video production projects for a more professional end product. Thinking back to the channel brief project earlier this year, I think our video intros could have been of a more high quality and relevant to the company brand that we was promoting using this software and technique.
