Kinetic Text

Kinetic Text

2 April, 2015

Our next animation project is to take a sound clip and put kinetic text to it. I was thinking of saying kinetic text animation, but perhaps kinetic implies animation. “Kinetic animation” seems redundant.

Anyway, my first thoughts were favorite lines from favorite movies such as (paraphrasing), “So tell me what do you do besides lure men to their doom on the 20th Century Limited?” from North by Northwest. However most of these one-liners fall outside of the 15-30 second requirement.

And why not use something I have a chance of using? So I combed through some clips from our Art After X interviews and came up with this clip from the James Surls interview. Can you visualize it in your mind’s-eye?
