The assignment brief is to create an Animated GIF using clips from my favourite or least favourite film. Now, I’m a bit obsessed with watching films, as in I will watch films all day if I could no matter if they are considered to be bad films or good films. I watch anything and normally find them all pretty good.
Now my all time favourite film has to be Grease (1978), I just love the energy, the romance, the music, just everything. I remember ebing very young and playing the film in the living room and dancing and singing along to it from probably the age of 5 or 6. I love the chemistry the characters have, the friendships, the style of the characters and how it can go from being fairly sad to very upbeat within seconds.
My favourite scene has to be the one I’ve used for this part of my assignment. The end musical to ‘You’re the One that I Want‘. So I went about creating my GIF from here which actually proved quite difficult because there was so much of it I wanted to use. Here is my GIF:
OH, and another one because I could just stick with this section:
Admittedly, my first one is probably a little too long but the whole thing is just too good!! I just love how she is so confident and sexy and really showing how being a women is something to empower. The one word I’d chose to decribe that GIF is ‘SASS”
HOW I MADE MY GIF:
I used Adobe Photoshop CC 2014. I followed instructions I found online. The first one I found and followed didnt get me very far. These Instructions were for using images layered but i didnt have a sequence of images that matches that I could find from Google Images allowing me to do this so I came to a dead end when the images didnt play in a sequence as such.
My next thing was to see if I could use a movie clip found online and then make that into a GIF. These instructions I found from a questions and anwers forum. The first responding answer what the instructions I used. First of I downloaded the clip which I was going to be using and then followed the step by step instructions by importing the file and using timeline. I then cut the clip down into a more GIF length animation by deleting numerous frames. Then simply save and use.
This was a fairly easy and fun exercise to complete.
