Short Film for film brief →
This film is a lot different to the previous one I looked at. I like the way it uses photos to make the film rather than using a video camera. I think the music helps make the film that bit different aswell. I think I prefer this film compared with the last film and it has given me the push to use photographs rather than a video camera.
Film Brief →
For the film brief we were given by Alan I have been researching short art films that may help inspire me as the brief can be anything we want it to be. I like this film but I think if I tried something like this it would be a little too long.
I only have one...
For this brief I decided to research Typography on the internet and to see which modern typefaces I like and dislike. Here are a few examples of the typefaces I do like: I like this typeface because it has a quirky side to it and it isn’t your typical typeface that everyone will use in day to day life.
This clip is what I really liked as it uses a scene from Batman: The Dark Knight with the joker and they have turned it into an animation that uses typography to bring the scene even darker than usual.

For the Animation brief Steve wants us to do I have been researching on youtube the different types of ideas people have had when using typography in animation. I found this short clip very interesting and wanted to create something with this type of effect in my piece.

For my third designer I have decided to choose Max Miedinger. He is extremely well known for the font Helvetica and this is what inspired the short film we watched last week called ‘Helvetica’.

Typography: Adrian Frutiger →
Our brief for Tuesday’s lesson is to have a Powerpoint Presentation about a typographer we like the work of and to research them. I liked the look of Adrian Frutiger who has designed many type faces that are still well known today. Here are some links to the research I have used for my powerpoint presentation.

We are to select two poems from the list provided and create a series of creative layouts...
The short film 'Helvetica'

It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. The film is an exploration of urban spaces in major cities and the type that inhabits them, and a fluid discussion...
We were given our first brief today, which includes Typographic Research. We were then asked to watch a short film known as ‘Helvetica’. I actually found it extremely interesting as I have no previous knowledge of Graphic Design or Typography so I found the film very useful and the information about different typographers will help me with the brief we have been assigned.
