Motion Typography

How fitting! A motion typography video about a type-face?!? Get outta here! Helvetica is a cool documentary, but you must be interested in the subject or else you will be really bored.

Motion typography, also known as kinetic typography, is awesome. I just love a  well-done commercial or set of opening credits. I like how people make shapes, and move the words and letters, to create art. Maybe one day I will learn how to use Abode After Effects or something so I can make them myself.

The credits of Zombieland are discussed in another PBS Arts: Off Book video.

PBS Arts: Off Book produced this video on typography: how type expresses ideas and information and the balance between a type’s purpose and its artistic value.
