But I, being poor, have only my dreams; 
I have spread my dreams under your feet; 
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

What’s happening?

lots an lot’s of tweet with his in a sleeveless t-shirs with tha shoulders and stuff SINGING!!!!

how do you make gif's? what do you use? and advice?

I usually “see” gif already while watching the movie. I watch the scene and know that it’s gonna make a good gifset. 

I use Free Video to JPG converter to make caps. It’s good and I like the quality of caps but it has one draw back, it can only make caps from the whole video. Like from the whole move I sometimes get from 100 to 200 thousands caps in one folder, and my computer really hates me for that ;)

It’s important to have best quality of initial video. I use no less than 720p 

After deleting most of the screencaps and rearranging what’s left in the folders (caps for one gif in one folder). I open the PhotoShop CS 5.1 and start making gifs. There are loooots of tutorials here on Tumblr about how to make gifs. This one is pretty good. 

So here in PS all magic is happening transferring caps into gif ;) Here I struggle with dark scenes, shaky cameras and weird colouring :((( It takes from 5 to 15 min on each gif, depending on dificulty and weather I can use old PSD or need to make new.

PSD is a saved set of features, like contrast, brightness, colour filters, textures and many others. I have several that work nice on dark scenes, and some to make B&W gifs (my favourite ;)

After all done I make sure that gif is within Tumblr parameters (500/245/160px wide 750 or 400px high max and less than 2mb). Sometimes I need to sacrifice something to meet all this but It’s now much easier than with 1mb limit ;) 

So, yeah… this is how I make them :) I can go into details if you’re interested or you can just ask questions.  

The amount of things I don’t care about is alarming…

Exciting adventures of a new CIA recruit, P5

Somethings happened between 2nd ans 3d gifs. Bad things. 

This is just great :)))

The verse he’s telling is:

Я узнал, что у меня
Есть огромная родня:
И тропинка,
И лесок,
В поле – каждый
Колосок,
Речка,
Небо надо мною – 
Это все мое, родное!
