    Assignment Bank #2

    Star Rating: 5 stars This assignment I ran into some trouble. The sad part is, it wasn’t even over this assignment. I originally intended to do another assignment, which requires you to make a barcode out of up to 9999 images. I downloaded the required software and was immediately confused. I had no idea how to get all of the images to make the barcode. I did some research and looked at other blog posts where people had done this same assignment, and STILL ran into trouble. One blog post said to download a plug-in onto Google Chrome. This meant I also had to download Chrome, as I only use safari. I downloaded Chrome and the plug in, and destroyed my computers memory by trying to download hundreds of images. Once I finally figured out how to download these images, I tried putting them into the software to build the barcode, and it didn’t work. I then tried the process over again, and once again it did not work. I ultimately decided to delete all the downloads and plug-ins, and chose a new assignment. I knew I wanted to chose another five star rated assignment, because I have yet to do one, but there weren’t many to chose from. I eventually found this one and got to work. This one was a sigh of relief. It was something I could actually do on my own. I had to think of a movie that I could recall enough in detail to portray into the GIFs. I chose The Greatest Showman because I have recently watched it and enjoyed it. Finding the GIFs was very easy. All I had to do was type in a few key words, and exactly what GIF I was looking for appeared. I just kept searching for GIFs to complete my story and wrote a short synopsis to bring everything together. I think GIFs are such an innovative way to show a story. You get a short little taste of what you’ll be seeing, and if you like it, you’re free to watch it as well and leave me a comment telling me what you thought of the movie and if my post did it justice!

    Summarize a movie with Animated GIFs

    For this assignment I was tasked with telling a story of a film using only Gifs. I wanted to incorporate my created character into this specific assignment because I think it would be a cool way of physically showing my characters backstory. So I will be taking gifs from other films and putting them together …
