Fresh Prince intro

I grew up watching the TV Show Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, so I wanted to re-create the rap intro in kinetic text. The show was created in the 90s and used a mix of fluorescent colors, so I tried to keep similar colors, but by modernizing them a little.

It's the first time that I animate something like this and I didn't realise how fast it went until I started to animate. I started out by laying out the text and drawing the illustrations that would accompany the text. Here are a few screenshots:






Because the rap is fairly fast, it was quite the challenge to synchronize everything; show one thing and then quickly move on to the next thing.

I did run into a slight problem at the very end, when the end credits scroll up, there's an optical illusion shadow going on. When you pause it, you see that there are no shadows. I didn't use any shadow, lighting or any special effects. If someone has an idea of what it could be and how to fix it, that would be great.

Here's my animation:

Here's an updated version :
