For my sixth assignment for my final I choose GIF Animate Your Day Like Ben. This assignment is to capture key moments each as an animated GIF – as you go through a day look around and identify places, moments, things that are well represented in the infinite looping form.
For my assignment I choose to follow Taylor Swift around on a normal day. Luckily Taylor’s “normal days” aren’t really that normal. I decided to take videos from Taylor’s red tour and make them into gifs. I looked up videos of her tour on youtube to find my videos. Going though and trying to find ones that were good quality was quite difficult. I had to search for a while until I found ones I was happy with. I ended up finding videos from her songs Sparks Fly, her opening speech, Treacherous, State of Grace, and I Knew You Were Trouble.
To make my gifs I used this tutorial form the ds106 handbook. While I had made gifs before, it had been a long time so I had to refresh myself. I mainly used mpeg stream clip and and gimp for this assignment.
Here are my gifs I came up with. I sure wish this was an average day for me.
