Fantastic Arcade and The Museum of Human Achievement present
✨ 🎁 Season of GIFing - A Digital Do-Si-Do 🎁 ✨
Let’s celebrate the end of 2022 by making animated GIFs for each other! Think secret santa, but more pixels and more lolz. Sign up by Dec 9, submit on Dec 31.
• Friday Dec 9 - Sign up deadline. Join the discord channel!
• Friday Dec 16 - Do-si-do! We’ll tell you who you’re making a .GIF for and what their prompt is. Interpret your prompt however you wish - get literal, get festive, get silly.
• Saturday Dec 31 - Post what you made in the #season-of-gifing channel and tag your partner!
☁️🌵 Swing your Partner 🌵☁️
○Howdy Y’all! This channel is shared between the Fantastic Arcade and The Museum of Human Achievement Discord Servers so game devs and artists can hang out and make stuff together.
○We’re using Connections Bot, which has some quirks. Emoji reactions are turned off, but other features seem to work fine. Let us know if anything seems funky.
○Add some inspo to your wishlist to inspire your dream GIF. This could be a favorite phrase, song, cozy location, pastry, deodorant scent, texture, type of cat, etc!
🎨 Animated GIFs?! 🎨
○ Even if you’ve never made a GIF before, we encourage you to join in and give it a shot!
○ GIFs can be made on a computer or smartphone from photos, drawings, pixel art, game engine exports, screenshots, video clips, etc.
○ Try opening a .gif in Photoshop or Gimp to see what its guts look like. You can “remix” an
existing GIF this way by altering the individual frames of the animation
