Why?

Just finished another short animation (notice how they keep getting simpeler and simpeler). After the last two animations I wanted to do some more typographic animation or, as people also tend to refer to it: 'motion graphics' (lame term).
This one is sort of a test and to get some more practice in, before I start on something a bit more challenging (and original), which I have brewing in the back of my sketchbook.

On the web there are a lot of kids doing these typographic animations using movie scenes as a guide. It's a pitty nobody really does anything original. Anyway I wanted to find out how long it would take me to make someting similar, well design and animate it that is. I didn't use a movie soundbite, and synching it up to something like that would cost quite bit of time (I guess) but I did this in a little over half a day.
Just a bit of fun.

I could not agree more with this short video. It's really nice, that style of animation, but I do like seeing people do other stuff with type. The biggest example I can think of off the top of my head would be DVNO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIVqIKbouY8

Stunning type and animation which references so many recognisable logos and styles.
