Project C progress Comments Professor Elliott "Aesthetically I think that this is coming along.... Keep the typeface consistent, as well as its treatment. Avoid outlines if they are not necessary since they really cut down on legibility fairly quickly. Think of the continuity of the animation from frame to frame. There is not enough sense yet of how the animation will progress from one frame to the next. Do the lines of the logo extend outward with a pan of the camera? Does the text fade of animate in position ? "

Z.Mclarhen "With type, I usually believe less is more....removing the strokes on the letters and instead doing some real subtle effects might help it read a bit more elegantly...The yellow you are using in Frame 3 is a nice complement to the cool blues and violets in your background..."

Project C finals Revision The text was given a softer treatment and yellow used to open highlights in each frame. Distinct transitionals such as frame 5 were created to improve continuity as well as using elements (camera,logo) to transition on a circular path. See Hi-res frames below...
