Here is my newest video, a tribute to the members of Class 1A! I spent a really long time on this and tried some new stuff editing wise, so I hope you enjoy this! I wanted to make something like this because I did something similar for Steven Universe a while back and thought this would be fun.
So earlier today I got rather pissed off when some rude anon who has probably never made a GIF in their lives decided to attack my friend (and one of the best GIFmakers I know) for no reason telling them not to talk about GIFmaking like it’s a big deal since it’s just taking clips from existing video. I was hoping to forget about this, but I couldn’t stop thinking about how many non-GIFmakers really do think that’s all GIFmaking is (including myself
before I started making GIFs
to some extent). Luckily, most people aren’t that rude about it and know not to insult content creators over a topic they actually don’t know much about…but I still feel the need to discuss some of the often lengthy effort that goes into making medium to high quality GIFs.
As a disclaimer, I’m NOT trying to be elitist and I
don’t consider myself one of the top tier GIFmakers. I also don’t think that GIFmakers HAVE to put in a lot of effort to alter GIFs from the original video frames if they don’t want to. It’s just a hobby where we try to capture/highlight cool moments using a severely limited and dying file format lol…so it’s really up to the individual how much they wanna put into it. However, the truth of the matter is that many GIF and graphics makers that contribute greatly to numerous fandoms DO put in a significant amount of effort to make their GIFs look different from and better than the original video.
EXAMPLES OF MY GIFS BEFORE / AFTER FILTERS & COLORING
I’ve seen people describe the “Overcome Chihoko” story in a number of ways–Victor being Extra, crackfic, something written purely for laughs, and so forth. And yes, I think all of those things are true, to a certain extent, but I’m not sure we appreciate exactly how lovely of an instance of crackfic this is.
Killian Jones, a famous actor, comes to Storybrooke to do research for his
next role, Emma is the one stuck with the babysitting duty. During their time
spent together, the two of them form a bond and eventually start a
relationship. Despite spending long periods of time apart they make it work.
What it says on the tin, on March 6-12, 2017 we will be celebrating the classic pairing Valhalla Enchanted (AKA OneChar), which is the enigmatic and brutal One Eye (Valhalla Rising) with the stubborn and endearing Prince Charmont (Ella Enchanted). Romantically. Platonically. However you see them in whatever timeline or universe.
To do this post gifs, edits, fic, headcanons, art, whatever you want of Valhalla Enchanted.
Remember to tag “#Valhalla Enchanted” to make your post accessible and easy to find and let’s have a magical fairytale of a week~
Let’s play a game: guess the artist I was trying to imitate in each one (Craig edition, sorted by level of grumpiness)! I tried to choose artists who are so stylistically recognizable it just punches you in the face hahaha~ Hopefully I did everyone justice >> MEGA ULTRA BONUS POINTS for anyone who tells me what happened to #4!!!!!
Sorry I’ve been busy lately! But when I saw this post, I couldn’t help but be inspired to do this~
