Word in Motion film.

(The film can be viewed bigger over on the vimeo page.)

Here's my 20 second film of a poem by Mikill Pane. It was an ambitious project to get done in a week, but was a wonderful opportunity to indulge my love of hand drawn typography. I hand animated and painted all the artwork, which was composited in After Effects by Jason Guest.

Also, please note the film is silent.

Word in Motion

It's been a busy year so far - I've just made a 20 second film of a poem by Mikill Pane. It's part of Word in Motion, an initiative to bring together poets and moving image to uplift and inspire London commuters during the bleak month of January.

Other collaborators include: Ray Davis / Benjamin Zephaniah / Studio of Williamson Curran / John Burgerman / Malcolm Garrett / Trunk / Cerys Matthews / Why Not Associates / Jarvis Cocker / Studio AKA.

From 16th January 2012 the films will be on display across 60 digital screens on the London Underground every morning (7am - 10am) and evening (4pm - 7pm) for two weeks. At Angel, Camden Town, Oxford Circus, Bond Street, Charing Cross, Covent Garden, Knightsbridge, Paddington, Euston, Piccadilly Circus, Victoria and Waterloo.

It's estimated that 1.5 million commuters will see the films, I hope you're one of them.

Happy New Year.
