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!

Wow : )

When I first read the title of this video (in an email) I thought it was going to be a flash about the exact scene, however when I stated watching I was surprised to see it was only in words, and I thought for a second that this video wouldn't be funny, but to my open mindedness I gave it a try and found it to be cool and somewhat humorous, which goes to show even without animated characters a video can still be cool. Great job : )

What everyone else said. That was really effective! Good job!

UnknownHedgehog responds:

"What everyone else said?" I'd rather hear your own opinion than a blatant agreement to popular opinion. That's the whole point of reviews.

you do know kira got killed right?

UnknownHedgehog responds:

Of course I do. He won against L, but not against Mello.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very good

You protrayed one of my favourate things about the death note series


It was with words that KIRA killed so many people so easily and it was with words that he was killed like the others he had killed.

Don't YOU just love sweetness of irony
