What could be more key and symbolic of the magic of Oz than the red slippers that Dorothy snagged from the Wicked Witch who got mushed by her flying house? The fact that Dorothy always had the magic but did not know it until sparkly Good Witch clued her in. This GIF is done for the classic ds106 Say it Like Peanut Putter assignment Make an animated gif from your favorite/least favorite movie capturing the essence of a key scene. Make sure the movement is minimal but essential. I knew an animated GIF of the shoes would be part of my new story. So I used PwnYouTube to download the video for the “No Place Like Home” clip as an mp4 I opened this in MPEG StreamClip to snag just the 2 second segment of the shoes flopping. I opened it in QuickTime player to then save it as a …

Minimal movement gif

 
For this DS106 assignment it asked for as minimal movement as possible in a gif. So after a while of searching for a good scene to use my boyfriend linked me to a great scene in the show Suits. There is 2 layers here, the top layer is a…

Sweet Feet’s shoes over the bridge = destiny

DS106 Visual Assignment: Make an animated gif from your favorite/least favorite movie capturing the essence of a key scene. Make sure the movement is minimal but essential.

 
This is the scene from the movie Holes where Zero throws Sweet Feet’s shoes off the bridge and they land on Caveman.…

Say It Like Peanut Butter (Pulp Fiction)

Here is an animated GIF from one of my favorite movies “Pulp Fiction.” In this scene Vincent shots Marvin after his gun accidentally after they dive in a pot hole.…

What Tom Hanks Thinks About Me Making GIFs

 

I need to laugh like this more often.

 
This assignment sucked.  It made me cry.  Many many times.  Actually, it just made me cry again, as I just finished typing it up, and when I clicked save, it deleted all of my writing, saving only the GIF.
What…

Say it Like the Peanut Butter

I made a gif of the scene when Andrew and Steve, some of the main characters, are using their telekinesis abilities to fly. I recently watched this movie and I thought it was really well made and deserved a gif. I like this scene particularly because in my opinion it’s…

Star Wars Gif

Wedding Crashers GIF!! Quite the Experience

So making this GIF was pretty exciting, and at the same time kind of monotonous. Also, the first time I tried it the frames got screwed up and made a nightmare for me but here is the final product and I am pretty proud of it. This is a clip…

First GIF – Puny God!

I’ve been curious about making GIFs for a while now, but have never been motivated to look up how to make them. Well this finally convinced me to do it.
I don’t really have a particular favorite movie, but I loved seeing the new Avengers movie twice this summer so…

GIF created by the one and only!!!

When I saw that we had to create a GIF I had to find out what exactly a GIF was.
Being the inquisitive person that I am I had to research and find out what it was before I could figure out how to create one.   From doing my research…

Oorah! Bootcamp Week 2

I have officially survived DS106 Bootcamp Week 2!! Alleluia!
Wow, what an experience. This week’s work took more time and effort. I already had a leg up on the first couple tasks i.e. I had already customized my blog, changed up my menus, set up the “cool” version of permalinks…

? Don’t touch that, it’s HOT!! ?

Ta-Da!! My goodness what an adventure creating my first GIF! I chose to use a clip from Sweet Home Alabama, this movie is one of my all-time favorites. In this scene young Jake is protecting Melanie from touching a hot spot that was just struck by lightning
At first, the…

My first gif clip!! Go Happy Feet

My first assignment

I made my gif using the software suggested and following the videos. I pulled a clip from one of my favorite comedy movies of all time, Tommy Boy. As a background, Tommy is trying to sell brakes to the man watching what is happening by illustrating what happens to his…

Woman In Black

The Woman in Black, the 2012 version not the 1980′s one, was probably the worst movie I have ever seen. I shouldn’t have expected anything else with the horrible commercials advertising it, though I couldn’t find the video of the one I always saw (the audience reaction one which was…

My First GIF: The Jesus Run

For the DS106 assignment “Say It Like The Peanut Butter“, I decided I would create a GIF using a few seconds of a montage video I’d recently seen on youtube.com. The title of the video was “People Are Awesome 2012” and features a multitude of short clips of people doing…

Animated GIF: Za Stalina!

So for my first animated GIF I chose to make a clip from one of my all time favorites, quite possibly the most epic war movie ever made, Liberation!. This Soviet film (well, series of films) tells the story of … Continue reading →…

50 Eggs: A GIF story

I chose to extract my GIF from “Cool Hand Luke” starring Paul Newman. I highly recommend the movie, and without ruining it, the above GIF is from a scene where Luke, Paul Newman’s character, is eating 50 hard-boiled eggs as part of a bet he made and the whole prison…

First digital story: Simply “Spell-tacular”

For my first Digital story I used various images from a Harry Potter movie.  It was difficult at first to find similar images with slight differences, but once I found images I used  www.makeagif.com to create my digital story. Below is the link that will take you to the digital…

This conversation is being tape recorded

By the time Friday evening rolls around, I’m pretty useless.  Friday nights are good for a decent beer and maybe a movie.  Friday nights are also good for DS106.
I’ve spent the work week cataloging a slew of new books.  It’s boring, soul-killing work.  I did reward myself with some…

Immaturity at it’s finest

My assignment was to make a gif from my favorite movie. My favorite movie of all time is Uptown Girls… I need to watch it again soon actually.

Uptown girls is a movie about a woman that needs to grow up and a kid that needs to learn how to…

Mean girls make GIFs…

 

Voila! This is my GIF from the lovely movie “Mean Girls”. It is when Regina George gets hit by the bus. I choose this movie because it is honestly one of those movies that you can just quote and everyone would know where that quote came from (“You go,…

DumbleDead

Scene: Dumbledore falling after Snape Kills him.
Movie: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
First off, I’d like to thank Jim Groom for his awesome tutorial which made the process of making a GIF go ever so smoothly. It was step-by-step with screenshots and links to all the cool software(Fastest…

WTF is a GIF? Annie wants to show you!

I had no clue what a GIF was before this assignment. At first I found this assignment extremely intimidating, but once reading Jim Groom’s tutorial on how to make a GIF a few times I felt like I was ready to give it a try. The first thing I did…

Assignment 1: GIF

This is my awesome amazing GIF. I created it with a little help from DS106 Handbook. I love Dr. Seuss’ books and I especially love the movies made from them. Recently, I watched Dr. Seuss’ the Lorax and the message “Change the Future” struck a cord with me. For most…

LLAMA FACE

Our assignment this week was to create an animated gif image that showcased part of a favorite (or least favorite) movie. If this works, I’m going to build MYSELF a summer home on top of an ancient Peruvian village.

Flash Gordon Approaching

About 15 years ago, my uncle introduced me to my favorite “its so bad its good” movie. The movie was Flash Gordon (1980 version). I liked it so much as a kid that my uncle eventually gave me my own VHS copy to wear out.

Animated GIFs Galore!

I came into DS 106 rather late, so I’m playing catch-up and will be posting the bootcamp content out of order. Just for fun, I thought I would start with the animated GIF project (Say It Like The Peanut Butter).
I decided to create a GIF from my favorite movie,…

I love the smell of GIFs in the morning

I decided to start off the week in a productive fashion by knocking out one of the harder assignments for the week. Before I start, I should mention that I love GIFs. I find them hilarious, but I’ve never tried to make my own. That was an ordeal to say the least. I learned that […]

Woot, Look at that! I made a GIF!

My Favorite Movie? Pan’s Labyrinth.
My Favorite Scene? The Pale Man; aka: The Baby Eater.

Isn’t he just adorable?!
I had never in my life made a GIF before, The tutorial made by Jim Groom helped so much. I downloaded GIMP (which I have used previously for photography) and StreamClip.…

Lydia got an A, so I made a Gif

So, I made a Gif. I didn’t even know what a Gif was really. But after many hours of frustration and trial and error I made a gif and know what one is. But that seems to be what ds106 is about, learning by trial and error to create something…

my somewhat gif (hopefully)

I did two because I found the process a lot more fun than I thought I would. Jim Groom’s guide was beyond helpful to me. I downloaded mpeg streamclip and gimp and after the first time of following the directions, I was able to guide myself through the second one.…

Frustrations Resolved…somewhat

Making a gif proved to be one of the most frustrating things for me. For some reason or another I cannot grasp how to make one. I tried many online sources and all proved to fail me. I tried to find photoshop, but wasn’t willing to spend the money on…

Say it like Tequila

I see another round of DS106 has started, I have too many balls in the air at the moment to do more than watch it flow through my reader. Then I saw Week 2: Bootcamping It:
This week, we’re also going to ask you to do your very first digital…

Handy Set of Guns

Nicolas Winding Refn’s avant garde movie Bronson is a semi-biographical account of Britain’s self proclaimed “most violent inmate.” This movie was a real step forward in the now renown movie star Tom Hardy (Bane). The flick has TONS of fighting, mumbling British accents, and great ’80s music. The gif below…

My First GIF!

The Avengers!  If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s amazing.  I loved it and laughed so hard when I saw this scene.
So, we were given this assignment.  I’ve never created a .gif before and had to do a little bit of digging before I finally figured out how to…

Criss Cross: Sharpening Her Nails

I think the noir animated GIFs this semester are going to be fun! This GIF features Anna Dundee (played by Yvonne DeCarlo) sharpening her nails in Robert Siodomak’s 1948 noir Criss Cross, a film wherein Burt Lancaster reprises his role as chump from Siodomak’s 1946 The Killers. This film is…

The Killers Animated GIF: Headlights

This is the opening scene from Robert Siodomak’s 1946 noir classic The Killers, which is an extrapolation of Ernest Hemingway’s short story by the same name. That’s part of why Hemingway starts off the hardboiled course, and this film is one of my favorites, if not my favorite, noir of…

Animated Giff’n

Finally.  I got around to making a few animated Gifs.  I chose Ghost World.  I love Thora Birch’s interpretation of Enid.  Birch’s expressions are priceless, and kind of capture what I feel at least a few times a week.  Is it healthy to possess so much teenage angst at 36? …

Shark GIFing for ds106

jim groom posted a GIF of Henry Winkler’s infamous/iconic shark jump this morning.
 

 
I can’t imagine a world where media-saturated Bava had missed the origins of this trope.  And if that’s really the case, then maybe he missed the Arrested Development sequel as well.

I Believe So Strongly in #ds106

For a few years, I’ve watched the explosion of amazing film-clip GIFs take over the web. Even as the #ds106 crew churned out fantastic artifacts in class after class, I consistently viewed that as a consumer.  Clearly it involves a lot of aestetic judgment and technical skill.  It belongs in…

Animated GIF: This is not Timothy Carey

Story: It’s been more than a quarter of a century since I first watched Paths of Glory. At that time, the experience of watching the nearly 30 year old film was profound. As part of my research into Timothy Carey’s career apart from World’s Greatest Sinner, I was delighted to…

Kung Fu Hustle

I am fond of animated gifs, but haven’t had time to make any. After seeing Jim Groom’s Master of the Flying Guillotine Animated GIFs I went over to YouTube to see if I could find any kung fu. Kung Fu Hustle – YouTube which I had watched in the cinema.…

I didn’t know about the Say It Like the Peanut Butter assignment until I noticed kag0715′s awesomely frightening first animated GIF come through the ds106 stream.

Dear Obstinate Learners

Dawn of the Dead and Road Warrior Animated GIFs

Me and the gals learned to stop worrying and love the propaganda.

This is an ANIMATED propaganda poster. I used Photoshop and very crudely selected out the bits I wanted to erase, used the eyedropper to select the background colour and filled in parts. This…

Oh Captain my Captain!

I knew as soon as I read the assignment which movie scene I wanted to do. I haven’t watched The Dead Poets society in a long time, but you only need to see it once to have this scene stick with you. It always made me feel left out to…

Color Splash Gif

I felt like I needed to do one more assignment to get the number of stars needed for the week, even though I’m not doing this for a grade. I really wanted to try the movie summarized in gif ones but the movies on my computer right now didn’t really…

Dog Man

All the Cat Breading and Dog Swapping shenanigans that have been going on around ds106 reminded me of that crazy scene in the 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers when the dog man comes running up to Donald Sutherland, Veronica Cartwright, and Brooke Adams, it was pretty much…

ds106 come out and play!

It was only a matter of time before I did an animated GIF assignment from the 1979 classic The Warriors, a film that seems to be an integral part of the ds106 fabric. This one was actually pretty easy to do—I’ve done many an animated GIF—and while this isn’t the…

the 488th day of summer

The scene featured in the animation above is from (500) Days of Summer, which is one of my favorite movies. It tells a realistic story in a hopeful way. So many movies about love either have a cliche romcom ending or a depressingly sad ending. (500) Days of Summer is…

American Werewolf in London Animated Movie Poster

Writer, director John Landis is best known for his comedy work in the 80s, particularly the Blues Brothers, Trading Places, and Three Amigos. But the cult classic, An American Werewolf in London was one of two forays he made into the horror genre (I never saw Innocent Blood, but reviews were…

Danger Diabolik is one of my favorite Mario Bava films, and this animated GIF is taken from probably my favorite scene in the film which has Diabolik tearing around in his bitchin car driving to the tune of Ennio Morricone’s best song off the soundtrack “Driving Decoys.”
