Today we created gifs, which as a person who uses tumblr and other time wasting websites, I find pretty awesome. Even though we used a really simple, does-it-all-for-you website, it was really cool just to say that I’ve made one.
Gifs, as opposed to memes, are much more involved. When creating my gif, I had to think about the timing, and exactly which movements I wanted to include in the final product. I wish I could figure out how to add text, but that’s a bit advanced for me. Maybe I’ll figure it out later and re-upload.
Above the gif, and I’m pretty happy with it. The way Viola Davis is turning around and the camera zooming in is exactly what I wanted to capture. I wish the trailer had included the second before she turned around (from the actual show), but it works will nonetheless, I think.
