I did this using Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro. I learned about "type path" doing this project which can be a real useful tool rather than just working for hours just to keyframe some text moving along a path that still doesn't quite look like it's truly on it. I used this tool most effectively on the "Written by Jan Read" and "Beverley Cross" titles near the end of this video.
I had shot some footage for this which was not easy since this film takes place in ancient Greece, but I had gotten some close ups and abstract shots at the Plimoth Plantation, Mayflower II, and Plimoth Rock beach in Plymouth, MA. Unfortunately, I did not hold many of my shots steady for long enough for me to use and be proud of, so I went with my original idea of making it entirely motion graphic animation.
