A GIF is an animated image (different from a video) that can be anything from a short 10 second clip of a cute cat to a hand drawn animation. GIF stands for "Graphics Interchange Format"; think of a GIF like a flip book, except on the computer.
Storyboard That makes it easy to create your own GIFs. Ever wanted your storyboard to move? Or wanted to make a rocket ship take off and land on an alien bunny planet? Making a GIF of your storyboard opens so many possibilities. At the most basic level, all you have to do is download any storyboard in our GIF format! Of course, you can always make something incredibly fluid and awesome, which might take a little longer.
You betcha! GIFs are great for telling really short animated stories, and creating them is a great introduction to the process that many animators and storytellers use to create some of your favorite films. GIFs can also be used to summarize a full story or a single chapter. While dialogue might be hard to read on these fast moving images, students can use captions and action to show the events of a story. Here's some other cool things you can do across different subjects:
