I been playing around with a typographic intro project for my new demo...It's also know as "kinetic typing". I wanted to get some feedback on what you guys think! Here are a few samples of what I mean.

This is just a basic test of what it's gonna look like. We still need to finish about 7 seconds of the intro to complete. The link below is a high res quicktime so it could take a moment to load. After this intro it goes into my full 5 min demo video with animated quotes and such.... This hours of work by the way. Not something you do overnight. haha!

Turn your speakers up!!

I loved the "Fight Club" animation.

Now I want you to design the opening flash animation for my website. Smile

BTW, you misspelled "recommended" in the third animation...

Sweet. Was thinking the same way Dean was.

What a great way to break up the monotony of demo videos.

Thanks for the heads up on the spelling! Were trying just to lay it all down first, then go back and add and fix the fx and all that jazz. we have a cool idea for how it's going to start and end... I'll have more in the nextb few days.

The program were using is Adobe After effects. great program! Takes a VERY long time to put stuff like this together. I'm glad you guys like it! It's deff gonna be a different way to open a demo. I've not seen it done before for a magicians demo... :0)

Me neither. *grin* Here's a few screenshots of a video I produced about five years ago.

Not as good as yours, though. But I didn't use After Effects, either.

And I like the other clip you posted in the other thread even better. As Dean and others have said, its a very compelling display of testimonials, the most important thing to include in any video.

You've got a lot of potential with the direction you are going. Its very exciting to see demo reels pushing the limits and keeping up to date with current motion graphic trends.

Have you seen the introduction to The Kingdom? The first four minutes of this movie is the single best example of this style I've ever seen. You should check it out, if you haven't already. It seems like you've seen stuff like this before, with your skill and you have probably been influenced by this, too! I was!

Keep up the great work!

Hey Scott! Wuzzz up m?! I like the video you did for Mike! Just to clear this up my buddy Jim Gravina is the man behind the animation. http://www.JimGravina.com I'm only there as a "creative eye" for things. LOL!

I watched the video of the Kingdom. It was GREAT!!!

As a visual effects/motion graphics artist I really appreciate all of the layers and work that go into something like this. It's looking great!
