I taught a class a few years ago: Word, Screen, Motion (2005) that ranged from 
crawling text on screen (e.g. Bloomberg TV; news crawls on CNN, etc.) through 
commercials to film poetry, etc.

In setting it up I queried Frameworks, and got lots of responses.  Here's some

        great publication…old issues are a treasure trove

Some readings:

The book I used (actually more of a booklet) is Edward R. Tufte, The Cognitive 
Style of PowerPoint.  This might seem a little spendy but it is excellently 
produced in color and well worth the cover price.  Tufte is a brilliant thinker 
and innovator in the field of information graphics and design presentation, so 
you might look at his other books too.

There are various books on "motion graphics" which especially cover TV, 
advertising, commercials, Jumbotron displays, informtdion and communication 
uses, etc. easily found on Amazon.com
 Interesting book;

SUBTITLES: On the foreignness of film, edited by Atom Egoyan and Ian Balfour.

and there's that great movie on the typeface HELVETICA
