Okay. So I was making this gif for THIS ASK HERE, and I just… had to make a separate post about it because…
OKAY. WATCH THE GIF. WHEN JOHN STEPS ON THE TITLE,
IT GETS BIGGER.
I thought it was a GIF error, since when I make gifs I have it cut every second frame to cut down on the file size.
BUT IT ACTUALLY DOES THIS ON BOTH DIFFERENT DIGITAL COPIES I OWN. I haven’t checked my BluRay, so I can’t confirm that. The GIF starts at Timestamp 8:25 for anyone who wants to check.
As a designer who has dabbled in video editing this is an easy error to make, but surely a production as huge as this had a tonne of eyes checking it before it was sent out, and as far as I am aware, this was done months before it actually aired.
I think this was a deliberate thing… almost like “HEY THIS WHOLE THING IS SHERLOCK THINKING MARY IS AN ABOMINABLE BRIDE, LOOK EVEN JOHN THINKS IT”.
LIKE… the timing is TOO perfect for it to be a mistake. It literally enlarges JUST AS JOHN STEPS ON IT.
Someone please tell me I’m not crazy.
