“Feeling Good”

SVA student Tamara Gildengers Connolly used type characters to create this music video for Nina Simone singing “Feeling Good.” Using type in this manner seems to be a fairly typical assignment in motion graphics and design classes, but the results manage to impress in this piece.

    Yes – completely loverly.

    That is SO cool. Somebody should hire this woman to animate the credits on a major motion picture.

  • Mr. James

    Rob T., that’s exactly what I thought. It looked like one of the coolest openings to a movie I’d ever seen. If I was working on a movie I’d hire this girl immediately! I had never heard the song either and I’m immediately looking it up and adding it to my ipod’s playlist!

    Thanks for sharing Amid!

  • Mr. P

    The song is from the 1960′s broadway play “The Roar of the Grease Paint, The Smell of the Crowd”.

  • Tom Pope

    Pretty awesome. Bob Winquist would go right to it, and that’s a big compliment.

    Whoa! Saul Bass with a Compugraphic!

    It’s great, I love it. Here’s some notes.

    Get rid of all the unnecessary type and add some god rays and color for some production value.

    The tune-in marketing version has to be worked in as well as a web driver and sponsor billboard.

    we need to add a talent mondo shot and we must use the package type face.

    We have to run it by legal to see what they have to say about it. . .
