This is a short kinetic typography film that I created for an art college assignment during my third semester (second year). It is based on Light Yagami's dramatic speech in the final episode of the highly-acclaimed psychological thriller "Death Note."

For this kinetic typography film, I wanted to reflect and exaggerate the personalities of both speaking characters (i.e. Light Yagami and Nate "Near" River) through the effective use of typography, font and colour.

I hope you enjoy watching this short kinetic typography film as much as I enjoyed creating it! Plus, if you are a fan of Death Note yourself and you enjoyed watching the original series, I hope you like my own interpretation of Light Yagami's dramatic speech as much as the original version!

This kinetic typography film is also available on Newgrounds! Be sure to vote! [link] Thank you!

Kira: It's very good vision and very good technique but I would suggest a better way to express the wording, the blood and words are repetitive. For example the "I'm am Kira" part has the blood effect but, all and all it's an awesome job I give it two thumbs up!

Amanda: That is so epic technique and impact I was blown away! The wording like Kira said before is repetitive but, the way you expressed the wording was epic! I also like how the different point of views were shown in this Typography. I love it I give you a high five!

Yeah, I love Death Note. It's not the best nor my favorite series in the world, but it's pretty good. I liked this.
