Highlight Reel GIF Assignment: “Create an animated GIF of a sports moment to be played over and over again. It doesn’t matter what sport, but make sure its a cool moment in that sport, which would belong on a highlight reel.?”

My GIF: 

Greatest_Catch_Ever

The Story

This catch is arguably the greatest catch ever. It took place on a Monday Night Football game between the Giants and Cowboys. Odell Beckham Jr who made this one handed catch falling backwards also ended up scoring a touchdown on this play. Not only was this catch difficult to begin with Odell Beckham Jr also got interfered with by the defender right before he made this catch. Finally not only did he make the catch with one hand if you zoom in he caught the ball with only three fingers! I believe this is the greatest catch ever.

The Process, Narrated

Right from the beginning I knew I was going to use this specific catch in my GIF. To make this GIF I first found a website called Make A GIF and it allowed me to easily make a GIF. First I uploaded my video from Youtube to the GIF. It allowed me to change how long the GIF was with a max of five seconds. It also allowed me to change where the start and end time was. For my GIF I picked to start at two seconds and end at seven seconds.
