Mary Shelley, a Biography

Author Comments

An interesting moving text presentation I did for my English class. Watch Mary's life unfurl in a colorful text based video.

Quick thanks to the voice actors:

You guys are the best.

Do you understand some of the words you use?

Is London Dusty?

Ghost stories tend to get boring?

Ironically survived?

Nobody read anyways?

No idea why your using such colloquial slang in an English project as groupies and hangouts.

I really hope you're in Junior High or lower because otherwise this is a shower of shit.

Animation wise not bad but moves and turns to quickly.

Also painfully unfunny

reddott responds:

Is London dusty?
Ghost stories tend to get boring?
Yes, a better word would have been "repetitive"...
Ironically survived?
Yes; all her other loved ones died and the only loved one that survived survived only after her husband himself (closest relative) died. This is an example of irony.
Nobody reads anyways?
Nobody read periodicals in those days other than the upper crust; novels however were more popular.

It was a presentation to entertain and inform an English 12 class, to keep them from falling asleep during the project's performance.

The movements and turns are quick because the words are. I don't understand your complaint in this regard.

Painfully unfunny --
It wasn't exactly meant to be funny. Mary Shelley's life was wrought with sadness. Humor wasn't the purpose.

I'm disappointed that you didn't enjoy the video, but relieved that the reason why you didn't enjoy it was that you missed the point.

In conclusion, yes. I did understand the words I used. Depressingly, you didn't but found that you still had to write a negative review in respect to inadequacies you invented or exaggerated.

Good job. . .

ripping off Dot Dot Dot, but otherwise nice animation.

reddott responds:

I'd never even heard of "Dot Dot Dot" before I read your review.
This is, in fact, not a rip off of anything. It's a kinetic typography of an english project.

Kinetic Typography is when words are portrayed by moving around, and in fact there are differences between my style of kinetic typography and RicePirate's. In mine, I simply add words on a large, expanding stage, coming back to some words to add more text to them and layering others to redirect meaning.

RicePirate acts on a stage that constantly wipes clean in order to portray new text. His was a funny animation showing the defects of a silly review someone posted. Mine was an animated version of the biography of a woman. I decided to just add more words in order to give the idea of an ever expanding timeline, a "history", if you will.

Go on YouTube and look up "kinetic typography". You'll be able to see many more animations such as RicePirate's or this one.

Thanks for reviewing though. I watched "Dot Dot Dot" and it was great!

super good

hello sir this is good videos i really liked it i think mary is probably a beautiful woman and this film gives me an boner

reddott responds:

Well, thanks. I appreciate it. Just don't fap off to it too much, it might just amplify your obvious insanity.
