Death Note - I Am Kira

Author Comments

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!

Awesome man, please make more! :))

Holy Kira, that was amazing!!! i could never do a thing like that!! just, just amazing!!! :D

Good flash. I wanted to write a review on it even though it's been around for 2 years :3

Overall I liked it ^^. The only improvement I could ask for is about Light's voice actor. IMHO He sounded a bit uncontrolled at the beginning. I thought Light was a very skilful villain and actor so even though his identity is revealed he would still be very calm, seductive and evil, as if he is still in control of the situation. This Light just exposed his psycho character at the start O_o. Sorry if I sounded harsh, didn't mean to :P he was very good as Light otherwise ^^

I liked the flow and the fonts and the colours. Fits the style well. Maybe next time you could add some dramatic music :)

After Watching, I Was Like...
