I decided to create my GIF using the same video that I used my mash up video and screen grab for. (These children are safe)
There were many clips of the film that I thought would be a good idea to use for the GIF. In the end I settled for the children being evacuated walking out of a door with all their bags and luggage. This proved a good choice as it worked well when I put the clip into Premiere and made the video go forwards and backwards. Then, also in premiere, I placed the #VFL18 hashtag over the video in a white font so that it was clear and easy to see against the dark black and white background.
I then made this short clip into a GIF and voilà! A cute little GIF was born!
