War Kinetic Typography

This kinetic typography piece was created for my motion graphics class at East Carolina University. The assignment was to create a kinetic typography piece centered around a political standpoint/speech.

I was inspired by the life of a young American girl named Samantha Smith. During the Cold War, she wrote Yuri Andropov, the leader of the Soviet Union at the time, a letter expressing her fear of nuclear war. Andropov wrote her back, stating he had no intention of declaring war and invited her to visit the Soviet Union, which she did. When she returned from her trip she was asked what the people were like. Her response was, "They're just like us." To read more about Samantha Smith visit: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samantha_Smith

To animate the theme of "Why do we fight, when we're all people?" I utilized quotes from Presidents Obama and Bush, along with audio from the dispatchers at 9/11.
