Lyric videos are trending these days. I like watching them as compared to their music video counterparts because often they display the exacting grace of good typography coupled with kinetic effects. The final project for CEI is going to be a piece of generative animations that creates a lyric video for a given song.

I began by illustrating Yann Tiersen’s Amelie title score [Repository].

The idea is to pick punch words from every line and animate them using kinetic typography and other motion shapes that are beat and tempo sensitive.
