An Asteroid Named Psyche: Animated Typography
Date: April 1, 2019
Genre/Medium: Adobe After Effects
About the work: I created this animated video after hearing fellow intern, Ryan Powell’s, children song. The song personifies the Psyche asteroid and for me that was a lot of fun to play with in terms of animation. I created the digital work to look like paper cut-out stop motion because it is simple and easy to follow, especially with the text on screen making the video more of a sing-a-long. And because the song tells an imagined story, having a simplified and cartoony style made sure there wasn’t any confusion if this was a factual representation (since we don’t know what Psyche looks like yet!).
