Illustrating "Bracket" with Motion

We walked into type class yesterday with a little bit of Photoshop animation under our belt and a big motion project to tackle. We split up into groups of three and were assigned a type vocabulary word. We then were given 45 minutes to develop a short stop action movie illustrating the word and its definition. All frames were to be designed within Photoshop, printed, scanned, and then made into a pdf in order to animate. 

My group's word was "bracket": a curved or wedge-like connection between the stem and serif of some fonts. Not all serifs are bracketed serifs 

Here are some quick stop action type-focused videos that we were to base our movies off of:

And here is our "Bracket" video (keep in mind this is one of the first times putting type into motion...and we only had 45 minutes), it's also on a continuous loop so you might have to watch half of it and then watch from beginning to end. Enjoy.
