Shop Vac // Kinetic Typography

Ok this starts to feel a little like the amazing week since I found so many absolutely Fantastic shorts and animations! This is the second kinematic typography I found since yesterday and I really don't have any words to describe it. Here is the description from the creator:

" A kinetic typography music video for Jonathan Coulton's Shop Vac. This was created using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere and Toon Boom Animate.

I worked on this sporadically, so it's difficult to estimate how much time went into it. Somewhere between 500-1000 hours, but it was a labor of love."

Mad As Hell! Kinetic Typography

The best Kinetic Typography I've seen so far..
Congratulations to Aaron Leming

450 words individually synced and animated to the famous monologue from the 1976 movie "Network".

SalesMan Pete and Meet Buck by TeamCerf

This post is about two shorts I recently found by TeamCerf at their website: salesmanbuck.com

Now if I may be excused I'll quote cgSociety's post that I found about one of them:

"Buck is an ordinary guy. Well...if you except the "deer head" thing. And today, Buck is gonna spend this cool Sunday afternoon with his girlfriend who's so happy to see him (she's pretty much always happy). But when Buck find out that her father is not the sympathic and tolerant guy he excpected, the Sunday afternoon turns really bad. Baaaaaad. Bad."
