"I hope you don't mind if I ask, but how do you make your gifs?"

Don’t mind at all! (Please, send me comments, questions, requests, daily stats about goings on in the universe, whatever.) When I first started making gifs, I used a little piece of software called GifCam. Then my laptop died (unrelated causes), so I had to download the software again on my desktop. It was a worse version though. Now I have a less practical method… I play the video in VLC at 50% speed and press the screenshot button as fast as my computer can capture. Then I open up the images in gimp, crop, and save as gif. It’s……. tedious.

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be making additional posts showing off my favorite bits of cinematography in a different format than you usually see on this blog. I’m excited, I think these first few efforts I’ve got lined up look nice :D

For now, I just have to give a shout-out to cinema-snaps for the inspiration. Do check out their blog, they’ve been posting some damn fine stuff in recent weeks.
