DS106 Assignment: Turn a GIF into a FIG

Recently, I was exposed to reverse-animated GIFs. I must say, some are hilarious. Find a video clip, or shoot one of yourself, and then make it playback in reverse over and over again as a GIF. Try to find a situation that is absolutely mind-blowing when played backwards.”

Since my last GIF was of me rollerblading I thought I’d continue the trend and make a “FIG” of me rollerblading. This is a simple 360 but it looks pretty cool backwards. I wish I was that good at skating backwards in real life!

To make this GIF, I downloaded a simple video reversing app on my phone, which made the video run backwards. From there, I just put it into GIPHY, edited the length, and voilĂ ! A FIG was born.

Figuring out how to do this was a little frustrating. I thought it was going to be a lot harder than it was in the end. I’m pleased with the result!
