My Gifs To You~ Guide

Created by helterskelliter (@helterskelliter), guide for GIF A Scene in the Digital Alchemists Coffee Shop Make

In this activity, we got to experiment with making gifs. We were asked to consider what the alchemist cafe would look like and then create a gif that illustrates that experience. For my gifs, I used one video source. My first gif is meant to represent how I view myself approaching the problem of the more… »

What You Make (Haha) of It Guide

Created by Kelli (@helterskelliter), guide for GIF It All Together: Digital Art / Digital Life Make

My gif to you~ To me, a lot of our discussion has revolved around whether or not new digital media is art. Does it have that essence to it that makes traditional art moving and purposeful and, well, art? Can work made through digital means? I don’t know about you, but the answer to that for me, is yes. more… »

Created by Kelli (@helterskelliter), guide for GIF a Process Make

Ever wondered how to solder something together??? Well, look no further–I’ve got you. Though no small task, I was able to condense the basic soldering process into 6 easy steps: (supplies not included) Place your soldering chips around the two pieces of metal you want to solder. Fire fire fire fire fire (torch your piece more… »

Spongebob Uncaptioned Guide

Created by Marissa Candiloro (@rissacandiloro), guide for This GIFfed Digital Life Make

This GIF segment is from just seconds before the captioned GIF that I selected. It’s not as evocative as the first, especially not without text, but I like it because Spongebob and Patrick are talking about technology, much like we do every week in Netnarr. The short clip ends with Patrick gesturing to the computer, more… »

When the Netnarr checklist never ends Guide

I love this scene because I think of it every time I have a technological issue. In a lot of ways, Spongebob defined my generation’s childhood, because if I reference this to most people my age, they’ll get it immediately. I thought it was funny when combined with some light trolling at our class, which more… »

Uncaptioned (Alternate Title: #BYE) Guide

Created by Marissa Candiloro (@rissacandiloro), guide for Many GIFs From One [Western] Video Make

I love this GIF because it doesn’t need a caption, as the meaning is clear. In this selection, the actor isn’t merely riding off on his horse, he is jumping on the horse, whipping around, and leaving. In my opinion, this is the perfect GIF to use when someone is saying something wrong or annoying, more… »

When you see on Facebook that your friend is back with her ex Guide

Created by Marissa Candiloro (@rissacandiloro), guide for Many GIFs From One [Western] Video Make

I chose this segment of the video to use for my first GIF because of the look on the actor’s face as he takes his hat off. I don’t know the context, but it seems like a look of resignation, which is exactly what I associate with the caption, “when you see on Facebook that more… »

Selfies for the NSA Agent Assigned to You~ Guide

Created by helterskelliter (@helterskelliter), guide for This GIFfed Digital Life Make

Big Brother’s got to know my angles, right??? Lol My main gif here plays off the idea that out online activity is always being monitored. Specifically, I’m referencing the ongoing joke online (since the Snowden thing???) that all American citizens have an NSA/FBI agent assigned to watch them. I used a clip from the mockumentary What more… »
