5 Thoughts on ““The The Impotence of Proofreading” Kinetic Typography

    It’s a great idea applied to a hilarious poem by a brilliant poet, but I
    think the order of “impotence” of these three things should be the other
    way around. The original work portrayed on paper alone is great. The visual
    affects are funny as hell and definitely help one to better grasp the
    humor, adding to it in fact, but as great as the visual and audio effects
    are, the latter, and to a lesser degree the former, overpower the actual
    poem insofar as making it hard to hear Mali speaking.

    Addendum: I think I like this one better than the other written spelled out
    one. My advice is to alter the original work less, and just add to it. To
    alter the original work too much is to do it a disservice, not an honor. I
    personally often say that I don’t make great things, I make great things
    better, (I think that was a company motto some years back, DuPont maybe),
    but I always try my best not to replace the original idea. I hope you take
    this as intended, constructive criticism. Great work!

    Not to mention that they spoil the humor of the reading by displaying
    everything onscreen before he says it and adding pointless cartoon sound
    effects. I’m sorry, but no. Try again. You’ve missed the point. Kinetic
    Typography is about enhancing the spoken word, not replacing it.

    Clever work! I like this much more than the original reading: it’s shorter
    and much more visually engaging (and with funny sound effects!). Thanks for
    sharing!

    speaking of proofreading, it’d be nice not to have made a mistake where the
    poet didn’t – the way he said it was advice, not advise.
