Finally. I got around to making a few animated Gifs. I chose Ghost World. I love Thora Birch’s interpretation of Enid. Birch’s expressions are priceless, and kind of capture what I feel at least a few times a week. Is it healthy to possess so much teenage angst at 36? I’m not so sure.
I decided to use the first day of summer school since the expressions in this scene sum up how Enid feels about a lot of the bullsh**ery that exists in the adult world. For those of you who haven’t seen the movie or read the comic, Enid has just graduated from high school with the provision that she take and pass a summer art class since she failed the class during the school year. Enid happens to be a talented artist. I wonder how Enid would have done if she were in a class structured more like an independent study…
Here are those Gifs…
There’s too much dead time at the beginning of this first clip, but it was the first attempt.
This one didn’t turn out quite as I had imagined either. I also screwed up on the resizing. But these things happen.
This one is my favorite:
I followed Jim Groom’s tutorial. Very helpful stuff there.
