Crossfaded

The real college experience

- Depression nap at noon
- “I haven’t been to that class in 2 weeks lmao”
- sometimes ya just see ppl crying and that’s okay
- sometimes ya just see ppl napping and that’s okay
- DOG DOG DOG DOG DOG SOMEONE IS WALKING THEIR DOG ON CAMPUS THIS IS NOT A DRILL
- “Is it free?”
- “will there be free food?”
- profs walking in late, hungover in pajamas
- profs saying the fuck word and the freshies being surprised
- *prof walks in 15 minutes late* “y'all want some milk duds”
- a second Depression nap
- finding a lost temple in the middle of the campus gardens and using it as a study and napping spot
- seriously why has no one else found this spot
- accidentally getting locked into a building because you studied until 3am and you have to escape through a fire escape on the second floor
- Hammock Squad™
- witnessing a mental breakdown at least once a semester
- IHOP at 2am with the squad
- having to throw away your favorite water bottle because it smells like the alcohol you drank that one time you almost died on homecoming week
- the apartment 2 doors down is having a party and they saw you walking to get your mail and invited you and now you’re drunk and sitting on the floor with their dog
- The Weed Smell
- The First Crossfaded Experience
- everyone’s gay
- that one prof you become best friends with and ppl wonder if y'all are fuckin but in reality y'all are probably just chillin and watchin cowboy bebop or some shit

This is a truly-impressive background painting.

Great atmosphere, realistic moon-lit color palette, tons of detail in the lighting… someone put great amounts of work into it.

What’s less than great is what it crossfades with…

…specifically, that terrifying face…

staring deep into your soul.

Also on the list is the way the frame order glitched when I first made the gif…

…though to be fair, it’s beautiful in its own way, too.

Gravity Finale - The Movie

So back when Weirdmageddon 3 had just aired and I was still kinda figuring out what to do with myself after the end of Gravity Falls, I decided to put together a little personal project and edit together the last four episodes of the show into one big Gravity Falls movie. Dipper and Mabel vs. The Future, Weirdmageddon Part 1, Escape From Reality, and Take Back the Falls.

I basically spliced together the episodes by cutting out all of the unnecessary fades to back that would otherwise interrupt the flow, and doing some audio crossfade work to make sure the cuts weren’t jarring. What I created is (hopefully) seamless transitions between episodes that just look like normal angle cuts. To do this I had to sacrifice like one or two jokes (ex. “Oh no there’s Bill!! That’s what you guys were thinking right?”) but the payoff is something that’s actually really neat to watch.

To give you an idea of what I’m talking about, click here to see a preview of the concept! This preview consists of the very end of Dipper and Mabel vs the Future transitioning into the very beginning of Weirdmageddon Part 1

I even then went so far as to edit the aspect ratio of the episodes to give it a more cinematic, film-like feeling.

^^^ Like that

The end result is 1 hour and 46 minutes of Gravity Falls goodness that I titled “Gravity Finale”.

And I never ever did anything with it, like, I think I told maybe one or two people about it.

But today I watched it and I was like “wow people would probably be interested in this, right????”

So, here I am. Giving you guys your very own link to watch Gravity Finale! Let me know what you guys think if you check it out, I’d love to hear how I did in editing a movie-like Gravity Falls experience ^^
