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!

Great speech

I've watched "Death Note" In japanese, but the dubbed version is really great.
By the way, I really liked the video. You chose a great speech and you did a great job.

Thank you! I'm glad to hear that.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

ehh i dont know..

the drop shadows on the text and the static background dont really do the series justice.. just my opinion!

UnknownHedgehog responds:

Well, I think the typography would be harder to see if it didn't have shadows.
