I love typos, fonts and police. I discovered this week that a Typophile Film Festival existed. On the video above you can see the Opening Titles. It was made by Brent Barson and his students. It is :
A visual typographic feast about the five senses, and how they contribute to and enhance our creativity. Everything in the film is real—no CG effects!
The effect is great ! So, I wandered if Brent had made some more videos. And I found a video called F is for Fail. And I really enjoyed it. This is How Brent Barson defines it :
F is for Fail is a short film about the creative process, and the failure we always encounter, but usually overcome. Told using the alphabet, each letter informs us of the state of the protagonist’s creativity/state of mind. Each letter has two words associated with it (except A and Z); sometimes the positive word overpowers the negative word, and vice-versa.
Typographic footage was converted and exported one frame at a time. No filters or plug-ins!
