I have done quite a bit of video editing using several video editors, but haven’t created an animated GIF. Its’s actually pretty simple, but does require a few programs to complete. Luckily, you can find them all for free. Below is my first assignment for the DS106 course. I call it  “Scared Frodo”. I chose this scene, because I remember the first time reading Lord of the Rings as a child and just how frightening the black riders seemed.

For anyone wanting to try to make their own animated GIF, you can find the instructions here: Creating animated GIFs using open source software.
