Project 6 Kinetic Text

FROM PAPER TO SCREEN from Thibault de Fournas on Vimeo.

Choose a piece of text/dialogue from a book, movie, comedy routine, TV show, spoken word poem, audio book, etc. Transcribe the sound into words, or record the words into sound, and have both the sound and words ready. You will then animate the text and sound in After Effects. The final movie must be at least 20 seconds long. Bonus points if you write and record the audio yourself.

When/What do I turn in?

Due at the end of class April 21st MWF or April 22nd (TR), to be turned in as a Quicktime movie file.


Read text on the page, by nature, is a time based process. Some read fast while others read slow. While your project is taking audio from a specific source, the way you present the audio visually is your way of making the piece your own, and directing the viewer. By doing this assignment, can you change the meaning of the text through motion?

Type and supporting shapes are allowed only. Focus should be on type. You need to indicate in the video whom the quote or poem is by at the end or beginning of the sequence.
