This is a short kinetic typography film that I created for an art college assignment during my third semester (second year). It is based on Light Yagami's dramatic speech in the final episode of the highly-acclaimed psychological thriller "Death Note."

For this kinetic typography film, I wanted to reflect and exaggerate the personalities of both speaking characters (i.e. Light Yagami and Nate "Near" River) through the effective use of typography, font and colour.

I hope you enjoy watching this short kinetic typography film as much as I enjoyed creating it! Plus, if you are a fan of Death Note yourself and you enjoyed watching the original series, I hope you like my own interpretation of Light Yagami's dramatic speech as much as the original version! Thank you!

-EDIT: Friday 17th December 10- Won Daily 5th Place again? Wow...Now I definitely know that my Flash animation skills are improving! Plus, this is my first ever Flash animation that received an average score of 4 out of 5, which is considerably a very high score! Thank you everyone for your support and feedback!

Don't you people aggre?

that the only one who can change the world is Kira?

about the flash, i know it focuses on voice acting so it is a little unfair to compare, but this IS the best voice acting i've seen so far around here.

Ahh the memories, also, fuck you Near.

I like what you did with the font movement and the font styles. Not much else to really say about it....

"Not much else to really say about it?" Come on! Surely, there's GOT to be more to say about!

Epic

At first, I was thinking "this is alright, average." But towards the middle and especially towards the end, things got intense. Very well done with the font changes, size change and intensity of the graphics. I like your style.

I'm glad like you like how I changed the background colour and movement of typography for visual impact. It's something I decided to do after receiving constructive feedback for my previous kinetic typography music video "Dani California." Thank you!
