hello frameworkers,

its been years since my last post, but i wanted to let everyone on here know
about a project i'm working on because it is directly related to
contemporary filmmaking as well as its history.

a major aspect of this project is the relationship between the animated GIF
and the cinema – from early pre-cinematic formats (thaumatropes, zoetropes,
kinetoscpes, etc) to contemporary moving image culture.

if you've never made a gif before maybe this is an opportunity for you to
explore the format. animated gifs are very easy to make using photoshop -
here's a link to a brief how-to that you might find helpful.


i'm hoping that many of you will consider participating by submitting any
animated GIFs you've made, or by forwarding this to other moving image
artists you know who would be interested in this project.

thanks, and i look forward to hearing from all of you.
