Regarding this piece, it all started after watching Buck's Take part / waiting for superman trailer, which seemed to have the exact tone for what we wanted. Some of the copy was so good and served our message that we had to use it.
Regarding the visuals, buck's piece (Jr Canest's style) is a huge inspiration for experimenting and learning motion graphics. So the intro which is almost identical started as an exercise/study in smooth keyframing, and as the piece took shape, we decided to keep it and give a credit to Jr Canest's inspiring work. You can also find below a list for our inspiration for this piece. Hope you enjoy it.
