The Gettysburg Address Animated: Motion Graphic Design

Design, gettysburg, animation

This motion graphics video designed and animated by Adam Gault (New York) and Stefanie Augustine, brings the Gettysburg Address to life in a fittingly ominous and gritty light. The historical speech becomes more than the printed word, and the imagery reintroduces a meaning and weight to the address that textbooks cannot.
