Typography Animations Inspiration

After the feedback I received from the pitch I have been thinking about possible ways to include more text in my animation if this is what needs to be done to convey the science a bit more.

Because Saul Bass' classic title sequences do not feature lengthy amounts of texts but rather the odd couple of words I have been delving deeper to find something that I could perhaps bounce ideas from. There was an advertisement for a TV show I saw a couple of years ago which was stuck in my head in regards to this and after looking it up I saw a whole genre of this typography styled animations.

I wouldn't neccessarily make my text appear like this as this could take away the great Saul Bass vibe but it was something I found interesting, especially how the text appears on the screen and intertwines to really work.

Hey Emma,

This text business is all a matter of balance - you might even consider just having really kinetic text inserts that come before the sequences that simply, like cue cards, annotate what is about to happen - but you can have the text assembling on the screen in a suitably Saul Bass way - I think that kind of simple structure would suit your world too, because that last thing you want to do is clutter your world.
