Today is the last day of NaCreSoMo. As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been spending all weekend working on my final Creation. I’ve been planning this for a while…pretty much since (a) I realized that the last two days of NaCreSoMo were a weekend, and (b) Max (Maxuel) posted the perfect soundtrack. Here it is: my tribute to the multitalented participants of NaCreSoMo 2013.
Kinetic typography is something I’ve wanted to try for a while; the most recent impetus was the intro video created by Charlie N. for his music video troupe in last year’s Summer of Rice show.1 I will admit that a lot of the effects here are prepackaged with Motion, the program I used to create all of the video…but I think that’s totally fair, since that’s why the effects were prepackaged in the first place.
I hope that no one is angry with me for using their words (and in some cases, their images); more mildly, I hope no one is disappointed because of my choice in words or images. I wanted to choose phrases that could be linked to the creative process, and images that stood out for each person. I didn’t ask anyone because I wanted it to be a surprise…
I will write a postmortem post tomorrow about all the good things that happened as a result of this challenge, but for now enjoy the video. And thank you to everyone who participated this month for sharing everything you’ve Created; that’s been as much a part of the fun as making my own posts.
