If a picture's worth a thousand words, then a GIF must be worth a few thousand words. So a collection of related GIFs must be equivalent to a novel, or a script, or something truly powerful, right??

Tell or relate a story (or link up key ideas or themes from a movie) by assembling a number of animated GIFs into a storyboard or framework. Credit for the idea goes to Jim Groom, who suggested it.
