GIFable moments from The Prisoner

It’s way past curfew and for some reason the sleepy time music isn’t playing in my bungalow.  The lights are a little dim too.  Perhaps this is a consequence for not earning all of my work credits last week.

Might as well make some GIFs.

  1. Ha! Very nicely done!

    I, too, selected the “milk pouring scene” and the “see saw” scene as targets for GIFfing. The milk one was put aside for further attention (needed to fine tune some tricky bits) and the see-saw was close to a perfect loop but had a jump in it that I wanted to sort out. Pixel perfect makes for a long GIFfing session.

    It might be a fun riff to remove Number Six from “Peek-a-boo” and insert a bunch of other faces — Jack Nicholson and Woody from Toy Story come to mind …

  2. I think they are all quite nice. I like the thought of never-ending input to a computer, represented by Machine Readable. If only we could make it take a never-ending scroll (On the Road comes to mind). I agree with Andy that the time it would take to make perfect loops is more than many of us can afford to use; not waste, for the effort of the creative process is not wasted.

    • Agreed. As Andy said pixel perfect DOES make for a long GIFfing session. I’m much more interested in the creative process and the ideas that come with it. Perfect is the enemy of good (or good enough), right?

    • You have a lot of TVs there Mr. Groom. Perhaps having something different playing on each set is a new way to approach Speed Learn.

  3. Great stuff giffing when you can’t sleep is a great way to relax. I particularly like the machine reading and the final one. A TV frame often seems to help a gif.
    On Andrew’s pixel perfect point, being lazy I often duplicate and reverse to start. That might work with the seesaw but would make milk into a magic trick.
