Today I made the opening credit text which took longer than expected but looks great! As previously mentioned I was going to do fire text because of the candles in the monologue, however, we couldn’t use the candles which meant this was just random fire text with no relevance. I still used the fire text tutorial but altered it to give it a metal cold feel, like how the monologue was shot (cold and dark) and having the metal in there to link to the coin. This actually worked very well. I kept taking screen shots throughout making it and sent them to Zac via our group Facebook page, he would then give me his feedback and when it was finished I uploaded it to the group to make sure everyone liked it which they did, wahoo!

Below are all the video’s I looked at before deciding which style text to use.
