My first venture into Adobe After Effects was with Kinetic Typography, the art of putting motion graphics to typography to more interestingly present dialogue or lyrics. One thing that I always try to do with these videos is bring some of the character of the audio to the piece, whether dialogue or sung lyric, and make it more of a show than a script.
The following are several of my animations, each using slightly different techniques, to learn which I worked with best.

Far Cry 3 Vaas Monologue "The Definition of Insanity", Inspired by artwork I created for the Loss series of traditional artwork. WARNING: Profane Language
