Ozymandias — Kinetic Typography
Another personal After Effects project; a kinetic typography animation based on the Breaking Bad “Ozymandias” promo for Season 5b. I absolutely loved the promo when it came out and thought that Bryan Cranston’s reading of Shelley’s poem was superb and I’ve been wanting to do a kinetic type piece using it ever since.
This was another great learning experience, particularly in using text animators and expressions as well as using a couple of different particle systems to create airborne sand and dust. I also found the camera animation and 3D space elements of this project a lot less confusing and daunting than the last one I produced.
The whole thing was created in After Effects CS5.5 (along with Trapcode Particular and Tropcode Form plug-ins) and a few little bits of Photoshop and Illustrator as well.
