HE HAD IT COMIN'
time based typography animation
Wes Anderson’s movie, Moonrise Kingdom, is the love story of two young kids who fall into an odd adventure when they run away together. This title sequence is inspired by the quirkiness of the movie, Wes The song Cell Block Tango from the Broadway hit musical, Chicago, is one of the most well-known musical theatre songs and shows the strain of being in a relationship-something everyone can relate to. To recreate this feeling of tension in my dynamic typography video, I added forceful animation to go along with the words but I contrasted these big and loud portions along with quiet and soft sections to convey the calm nature of this woman, after she shoots her boyfriend. Mimicking the woman as she tells her story, going to her breaking point is the height of the animation but when the pressure is released after she commits murder, it goes back how she started the monologue, peaceful and composed.
