So today I realized that I have no idea of how to go about creating a typeface that only exists in motion. My initial idea was too create a grid like structure with some sort of lighting system stemming from my inspirational votive candle video. I don't want to do something that has been done before, and I don't want to stick to my initial idea. I am a little frustrated, because I seem to always stick with my initial idea. I took the advice to start creating rather than just thinking more, because I will realize what sort of interesting affects I can achieve quicker. Not to mention my thoughts will be more realistic.
So, I took my mind and attached it to my hand. I attached my hand to a pencil, and that pencil to paper. My ideas and thoughts are going to be more pure coming straight from my head onto paper. Here are some of the results of my desperate attempt to stay on track and not put Christmas lights up on the walls.
I have started to put some of these photographs into different sequences of stop-motion to see how the aspect of legibility is affected. I do feel better about starting to work with individual letter forms this way, and I feel like I am starting to get somewhere interesting. It is just a matter of me staying on track.
