Recently in CT, we created animated portrait GIF again, but this time using multiple layer frames of the image with dramatic effects in the Adobe Photoshop, which consist the lasso tool that I used to cut out the glasses on Spike Lee’s face. The image I chose was Spike Lee because he is an iconic filmmaker, actor, and writer since the 80s. His films target social injustice and controversy towards race and violence in law enforcement, and the government in urban communities, that connect to our world today. He is the only black filmmaker I know that still holds the culture of urban life in his films rather it was good or bad. Even specific locations within the films formulate meanings, that some people might pass by when they are watching them. This class has given me the opportunity to introduce, people in the music/movie industry that matters to me in GIF form.
