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!

You should create your blurs in Photoshop.

When you use the motion blur effect on your flash, it really drags performance down. Flash just handles it's own built in blurs poorly.

The typography project itself is grand, mine is a technical gripe. I have no idea why Adobe created those built in filters when flash breaks itself in two trying to animate them in the movie itself.

Sorry if you don't have access to Photoshop or any other program like that, but flash's built in filter effects are terrible.

You make a good point. I really should use motion blur more carefully to make sure that it doesn't cause Flash to slow down. Thank you for your feedback.

It's not really supposed to be funny, but I'm glad that it amuses you.

Nice

I could see this being, like, used for a trailer for Death Note or something. It was well made and I liked it. Great work.
