Above are a few still images from my motion graphics project for my 13 Going on 30 title sequence. As I continue to work on my project I hope to improve the overall flow and to add some sound effects. I really want to make it so that the transition from the big 13 to the small 13 is smooth and doesn’t appear choppy. I also want the final title “13 Going on 30” to flow smoothly piece by piece into the frame simultaneously with the blue wave. I also hope to add some cool sound effects that will have an overall impact on the mood of the piece. I would like to put sound effects during the countdown and as the blue wave flows into the frame. I am thinking that perhaps I can include a ticking type noise as the numbers lower, and a swoosh type sound as the blue wave comes into the frame. On top of these simple sound effects, I would like to play some magical type sounding background music throughout the entire title sequence to maintain the magical theme.
Along the way in creating my motion graphic project for 13 Going on 30, I was partially inspired by Disney movies. I find that Disney movies have influenced my planned sound effects and music, as well as, the overall look of the title sequence. I find that a lot of the sound effects and music that I am imagining in my head to go with my title sequence are something you could definitely hear in a Disney movie, and also play on their same themes and motifs. In addition, I think the actual look of my title sequence is similar to that of Disney movies with its simplicity, alike colours, and use of typography. I am hopeful that I will be able to pull off what I have in my mind for this title sequence because execution is really the key to making this project turnout.
