Submissions So Far

Number 2 as anvil

In the episode of The Prisoner called “Hammer into Anvil,” Number 2 pretty much loses it by the end. One part that really intrigued me was when he was shown towards the end stroking the penny farthing. I’ve seen some suggestions online about what the penny farthing is all about …

ROOK GIF, because

What’s he up to?

Well, I just thought another GIF would be good to finish the day. I’ve already commented on the chess puzzle in The Tally Ho, so I thought that puzzle could be animated. All frames taken from the Checkmate episode of The Prisoner.

It turns out …

A Design Analysis of the Number Two Great Seal of Office

Number 2 Great Seal of Office

In the episode “It’s Your Funeral”, Number 2 is honored during ceremonial occasions to wear the golden Great Seal of Office. In the scene in the watchmaker’s shop we see a rare glimpse into the design process. Left laying around for all to see …

Gifs begin where words leave off

A quick gif with audio. A warm up watching Hammer into Anvil. An interesting episode, no escape attempts but a moral crusade by Number 6 and a battle of minds with Number 2.

More fist fights and physical action than most of the episodes so far, kosho looks like fun.…

GIFing A, B and C

For week 3 of #prisoner106, we were asked to do the “Animating The Prisoner” assignment.

I struggled with this one a lot for some unknown reason. I love making animated GIFs from video because technically, it’s pretty easy once you get the tools.

What I struggled with was finding …

GIFable moments from The Prisoner

It’s way past curfew and for some reason the sleepy time music isn’t playing in my bungalow.  The lights are a little dim too.  Perhaps this is a consequence for not earning all of my work credits last week.

Might as well make some GIFs.

Machine Readable – from “The …

We don’t need no general education

 

Interesting happenings in the village this week, there seem to be a lot of ‘learning’ going on. As I watch number six get into trouble I am thinking my decision to be less confronting was a good idea. However this episode is taking the committee well inside my wheelhouse. …

GIFfing The General

I quite enjoyed the episode entitled “The General.” And given that I’ve been seriously delinquent in keeping up with my GIFfing, I’ve decided to remedy the situation by making a few.

I all but leapt into my computer screen as soon as I saw the toy bank “pass collector” in …

Animated GIF Warm-ups

Today, at the beginning of week three (visual), I decided I needed to review how to download video, select frames, and make GIFs. I watched the episode The Professor, and noted several opportunities.

To download the episode, I grabbed its URL from the prisoner106 archive, and entered it into …

GIFable Memories

I was gone for a while.  I can’t say where I went.  I can’t say for how long I was gone.  I can only say that there was no Internet.  Luckily I had files on my computer, so I was able to make some animated GIFs.  It’s important to keep …

Repetition, Repetition, Repetition

As we move into Week 2 and get more information, it appears that a major theme in The Prisoner is repetition (a long with reflection and recursion I hope).

Before I start thinking about the audio assignments, I knocked up a few gifs from The Chimes of Big Ben

Prisoner GIFFING – Number 6 Repository Adds

After a couple of days working on GIFs I have to admit – the ones from video clips come to me as storytelling and drawing out and explaining meaning or understanding from the work of others stories. Creating GIFs from scratch to add to one’s own story is different. They …
