I’ve decided to continue with the kinetic typography task we were set, although this time I’m going to do it a bit differently. Instead of creating a 2D text animation using Adobe After Effects, I am going to create the work using Blender, to produce a 3D animation.
I researched some 3D kinetic typography examples, and picked up on some common practices in the area. Something that interested me was that some of the examples I saw used a mix of 2D and 3D text to create a unique effect. One such example of this can be seen here – http://vimeo.com/57485219.
I thought for a while about what audio I should use for the animation, before deciding that for this piece I think it will be interesting to use the same clip from Gravity as before. Using the same clip will help me compare the two styles of kinetic typography and allow me to further improve on the existing ideas and themes I have already implemented in the previous animation.
I expect that I will be further experimenting with kinetic typography in the future, in which case I will use a new audio clip so that I can improve a wider set of skills.
