Storyboard Sequence



i have began to look at how transform can be made appropriate through the means of type for my silent movie brief. i have used and old English type face which is transformed into an Arial type face, this shows the transformation of old to new. i have also looked at a simple form of transformation which is the weight of the letters.

After Effects Assignment

this is a short animation which i found on YouTube. It is a short animation which lasts 37 seconds, this is longer then the animation which i will create. However it uses a wide range of type and a small amount of imagery to bring across a message. the words 'call' and 'HUG' work well (towards the beginning) as they uses movement within the letters of the words, to create an impression of what the words implies
