For this assignment you will build a GIF animation in Photoshop; it is similar to the digital collage but with motion. Approach the GIF format as a timeline on a continuous loop: can you make something that uses this idea of repetition?  Your GIF can be an original animation or a heavy mashup.  You can certainly pull imagery from many different sources to remix/reconstruct – old VHS, crummy TV games, hand drawings, high definition video/photos you shoot, etc. I expect you to create some really dynamic, interesting, and original content – keep your eyes open!
