Kinetic Typography

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.


Half-Life 2 Episode Two G-Man Monologue "Prepare for Unforeseen Consequences"
Far Cry 3 Vaas Monologue "The Definition of Insanity", Inspired by artwork I created for the Loss series of traditional artwork. WARNING: Profane Language
Lorde's "Everybody Wants To Rule The World", inspired by the Assassin's Creed Unity cinematic trailer featuring the same song.
Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis' "Can't Hold Us"
Portal 2 GLaDOS Ending Monologue
