This animation is based on one of Jonathan Ogden‘s wonderful typographic verses. He recently started turning single verses from the Bible into spiffy designs, blending his work as a designer with his passion for Jesus. Other designers have begun contributing, and you can even purchase some of them as prints, cards, t-shirts, and even iPhone/iPad cases. So cool!

I instantly loved them, and (as a video guy) immediately thought, “Man, these would be so much fun to animate!” So this is the first of hopefully many kinetic typographic verses :)

If you’re an animator and need a quick side project for fun/training, then consider flip-flopping a verse into motion. This only took me about 5 hours or less. If you decide to animate one, then please share with me and I’ll give you a shout out.
