The above videos are just to get the timing down. Sound and more developed visuals are in process and will hopefully be ready by the fall show.
I'm still trying to pick a title, but here are some tests I made for the trailer....

left slant, small and delicate letters - shows reserve
a 'cradle' on the lower stroke of letters g, y, p, etc. - avoidance of aggression and confrontation
a full loop on the lower stroke of letters g, y, p, etc. - need for security
narrow left margin, wide right margin - caution, wanting to avoid being pushed, fear of the unknown
high dot over the letter "i" - great imagination

For the final animation, however, I'd like something with a little more impact. I plan on making a painting with the text incorporated somehow. Caleb showed me some "Adventure Time" title cards, which look great and are kind of what I have in mind. EXAMPLES HERE
