dc.description.abstract The objective of this creative project was the exploration of the new genre of Design Cinema, specifically to use typography and motion graphics to tell a story. Design Cinema is best defined as a hybrid form of moving image that falls between motion graphics and filmmaking. The secondary objective was to design and create three significant pieces of work in Design Cinema, which focuses on utilizing typography and graphics in an abstracted story-based environment.The stories illustrated come from the book of Psalms in the New International Version translation of the Bible. These are some of the oldest texts in the world. This body of work, completed in high-definition video, required a process of pre-production (treatment, storyboarding, and planning), production (shooting, lighting, and directing), and post-production (capturing, editing, compositing, and design). Bill Viola, Jem Cohen, and Michel Gondry have impacted the style and structure of my video work.
