Jacques Brel Typography

Jo, had to make this for school, a kinetic typography of a dutch song of Jacques Brel, you won't understand much, but enjoy it though :D

Drunk, mad and foolish
I bit into my beer
in the fat Jane of Monverland
I drank a glass with Klaas
I drank a glass with Pier
And things got quite rad
Klaas felt like he was Dante
Pier wanted to be Casanova
And I, the superarrogant,
Thought I could be myself

And at 12 o'clock as the civil gang
Went home from hotel the Golden pheasant
We scolded them poo
And sang with passion
Cap in hand

Citizens, men of the year zero
Fat civilian clique
Greasy filthy pigs
Citizens, "tame boar stuff" (lol)
All who is a citizen is an ooooold (cock)


I love Brel and this song, and it was originally a French song called "Les Bourgeois" (French and Dutch are spoken in Belgium, and Jacques is Belgian, so he recorded in Dutch sometimes). And I love this typography. I know the translation is in the description, and it's really helpful for me because I don't speak Dutch.

Keep up the good work,
Lyric <3

You have some talent, but you should improve.

I understood everything.

Kinetic typography, has been overused these last time, so it's pretty difficult to impress people with it. I would base more on unexpected things, and the song makes it pretty slow, so I would have choosen a different one. But it's ok for a beginning.

Yeah, it was an assignment for school, it had to be kinetic typography and it had to be this song, so I had no choice. I'm still a total newb at flash though :D
