Kinetic Typography - Toy Story


If there’s one thing I love, it’s Toy Story. The movie’s story line, character development, and overall execution served as a huge part of my childhood. I’ve quoted the first of the movies so many times I could probably recite it from start to finish. As attribute to the movie, I curated the audio byte from the Mrs. Nesbitt scene into a kinetic typography experiment.


This form of visual presentation was just starting to develop as Adobe After Effects offered a perfect platform for the medium. Words and sounds were free to pop off the screen when assigned paths, motion effects, and even roles using the puppet warp tool. By stripping the original video and building up the visual side of this story from the ground up, I tried to re-create the conversation between Woody and Buzz.
