This video is my first attempt at kinetic typography, and additionally, my first time using After Effects software. Choral music is seldom used for kinetic type, hence I wanted to grab the opportunity, particularly when I am involved in several choir communities.
"With A Lily In Your Hand" is a piece by Eric Whitacre, translated from a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca, and is performed by Polyphony. I selected this particular song because it maintains a strong energy, yet is dynamic enough for experimentation. You can imagine how animated the singers are! I hoped to capture the passion of the words and express not only their meaning, but the way the singers perform them as well.
