I want to eventually create dynamic kinetic typography videos for Hamilton, but it's such a monumental task I thought I'd start with the simple timing with some light effects. This way I'll already have the text set up in my After Effects project for when I want to do the more ambitious version later!

Thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast of Hamilton for their amazing work!
