The Conan O’Brien Kinetic Typography Video is a digital design created by Jacob Gilbreath from Oklahoma State University. The video features Conan O’Brien’s speech from his final episode of The Tonight Show on NBC.
Jacob Gilbreath explains that the “concept behind this video is to show Conan O’Brien as a solid wall and a monumental entertainer.” The popular talk show host has been through some rough times and this Conan O’Brien Kinetic Typography video sets out to showcase his greatness. The video features a wall of over 60 individual typographic layouts with Conan O’Brien’s speech laid out upon them. The words are digitized in eye-popping 3D, which is achieved in Cinema 4D.
Jacob Gilbreath believes that the contrast within the video “emphasizes time and creates a sturdy and timeless object which is the perfect metaphor for Conan O’Brien.”
