Sport Hero GIF Assignment: “Make a GIF of your favorite sports hero!”



The Story

Michael Jordan has and still is my favorite sports player. Growing up as a kid I would tie my shoes everyday and whisper to myself “Make me like Mike”. When shooting the basketball in my front yard I would count down from five and shoot a fade away shot as if it was a game winning shot. Michael Jordan was always known for always hitting game winning shots at the last second. I would watch highlights of him and try to always reenact them. I would have to lower my basketball hoop to do the dunks. This GIF captures my sport’s hero in a nutshell.

The Process, Narrated

Right from the beginning I knew I was going to use Michael Jordan as my sport hero. I wanted to pick a video of him hitting a game winner and I found this one to be the best. 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 twenty-six seconds and end at thirty-one seconds.
