Amazing Things Will Happen

This is Conan O’Brien’s Farewell Speech from NBC. It’s really well laid out and beautiful. Kudos to Jacob Gilbreath for this great work.

This Kinetic Typography project was created from the dialogue of Conan O’Brien’s final episode of The Tonight Show on NBC. In this farewell address, he describes his feelings towards NBC and the situation at hand. His personality exudes positivity and humor allowing this dialogue to describe his character very well. Even through the hardships of leaving NBC he promotes hard work and kindness.

The concept behind this video is to show Conan O’Brien as a the monumental entertainer and solid wall that he is. Conan O’Brien is and will continue to be a seasoned television entertainer. After drawing inspiration from Lou Dorfsman’s Gastrotypographicalassemblage, this concept was achieved by creating a literal wall from over 60 individual typographic layouts. These custom crafted layouts reference a variety of eclectic type design. The combination of eclectic typography and modern 3D letter forms achieved in Cinema 4D provides a contrast between old and new. This contrast emphasizes time to create a sturdy and timeless object. This solidity and timelessness is the perfect representation of Conan O’Brien.



I created this, once again, for Blue Ridge Community Church. This is a short kinetic typography animation of questions people have asked as fears they might have of becoming a Christ follower. When people are looking for a reason to not do something, it’s easy to come up with reasons and excuses to shy away from it. It takes a lot more balls to just jump at something headfirst.

This was my first attempt at creating my own original music before beginning the design process, thus making it easier to sync to the audio for good beat hits, and to fit the length I would need. I made the audio with the help of my trusty friend Reason 4. You can view it below, or it’s hosted here on my vimeo.
