Motion Graphics & Typography - After Effects Tutorials

Motion Typography - Student Example

Hello All!

Below is a link to a playlist i have gathered from across a variety of the best motion typography tutorial videos on YouTube. The playlists is arranged in a sequential order based on the level of difficulty. I have also attached two student examples from my Year 9 group. The project is to bring visual value to an existing or original piece of music using motion typography & graphics techniques. All work is produced on Adobe After Effects.

These playlists serve as a great reference for my Year 9 and 10 students when they are undertaking the motion typography unit at school. Would love to get feedback on this list and suggestions for other motion typography or graphics based tutorials that you find valuable to your teaching!

These are some great sources. Is there a specific way you teach them to organize their layers or a specific way you teach students to animate? (ie) do you teach the use of position points, scales, null objects, camera tracking, parenting or pick whipping or so you use other methods Always looking for new ways to design these projects. I have implemented green screen effects and animation design elements to compliment the text and background movements.

Thanks Greg. Many of the students went above and beyond the playlist here and found their own tutorials to create their productions.

You are welcome Linda. My students love this unit of work. There is a lot of creative freedom once you learn the basics.

I usually start this off with my year 9 class but sometimes we cover this briefly in year 11 as a refresher. I usually get my students to animate to a piece of music of their choosing or a piece of dialogue from a movie scene. The idea is to add visual value to the audial elements.
