For this assignment, I utilized solely the channel of text to "narrate" the PlayDates mission statement. One thing that I found to be a challenge was the task of animating the text in a fashion so that it revealed more to the message than the words themselves. Through color change, movement and arrangement, I attempted to illustrate the mission statement with some special flares. I also tried to move the text in a quick, fluid manner so that it was read as one continuous thought, instead of broken up, unrelated phrases.
I constructed my narrative in a linear fashion, and only allowed the viewer to see smaller parts of the whole message as I revealed them. At the same time, I also allowed the viewer to "look back" at the previous portions of the sentence, or narrative, by keeping it at the top of the screen. This also helped unify the message as a whole, as mentioned before, in contrast to only being seen as pieces.
