With the way our project is going at the moment I can see us using After Effects for the animation of type. We were shown how to move text across the page and it seems simple enough to display information as an animation.
After the workshop, as a group we began discussing ideas of how we could do how our animation. Since the basis of our project is to educate people on information, makes sense to have our animation with mostly typography. We found a video online that visualised what we would want to create (below, created by the RCA Factory). So using information to create info graphics then animate those info graphics so information is interesting to read.
