For this assignment we were asked to reverse a GIF in a way that creates a funny, cool or mind-blowing. I have always liked the idea of seeing fireworks in reverse and thought this was pretty cool. Seeing a trail of light in reverse is never a site for sore-eyes and usually gets you to look at a different perspective.
I looked through my videos on my phone for quite a while to see which one I thought would be the best for this assignment. This however spoke out to me the most. I personally have had a fairly rough summer with several incredibly significant people leaving my life and an all around lifestyle and personality adjustment. This night, at the Clam Fest fireworks, was the first night in a while that I wasn’t worrying about any of that. I wasn’t trying to run from reality. I was enjoying the present, doing something that made me happy, and watching the beauty unfold. This is happiness.
I really liked doing this assignment not only because I really have enjoyed making GIF’s (this one in particular), but also because it put me into a very good mood! This assignment was fairly simple to complete. I had to trim the original clip (about 20 seconds long) to find the exact piece I wanted, upload it to GIPHY to create a GIF, and then upload it to FreeGIFMaker to reverse the GIF which gave me an embed code to add to my blog.
