Offering this workshop. Get in touch now to book one!
A gif is a file format created in 1987 that allows for highly compressed animations to be created with a minimum of effort. In recent years, thanks to sites such as tumblr, Reddit and Buzzfeed, gifs have grown in popularity as a way to tell a quick story or share an animation.
Gifs can be seen everywhere from annoying banner ads on websites to high profile animations seen in art galleries and TV screens.
They can be created with a minimum of effort in programs such as Microsoft Paint, or artists can utilise more advanced programs to create highly stylised and intricate animations.
In this workshop new media artist Antonio Roberts will run through the history of the gif and show you how to create these awesome visual delights for yourself using only freely available web-based tools.
