The limitations of GIFs are part of what makes them great. The constraints sort of lend themselves to forcing a little extra creativity. Finding that perfect loop, finding that great moment that so perfectly works out of context, spoofing text that fits the scene/mood to repurpose those frames for a niche community - it's just fun to make and share GIFs. The problem with video is its a video.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
