Type Cast

Custom Typography, Animation, Research
2020

Type Cast is a short digital play performed as a constructed dialogue between two individuals, each wearing typographic clothing in conversation with each other. Conceived and directed by John Pobojewski, the piece explores the relationship between letters, personality, emotion, and stereotype. Throughout the dialogue, the two actors challenge each others’ expectations and begin to lose faith in their mental image of what the other stands for—both for the good and the bad.

My contribution to the piece is four stop motion typographic garments made from crumpled and scanned paper that pull together and break apart the words Never, Always, My Regret, and My Fury.
