Nerd Approved

The Nerd Approved blog has featured an old gold animated GIF movie poster I created for the ds106 animated movie posters assignment back in January 2012. It’s fun to see stuff I created for ds106 get featured on other sites. I’m also glad they haven’t found Michael Branson Smith‘s animated GIF movie posters yet, because I would’ve never gotten featured otherwise.


It was cool to see the other posters they featured, I particularly loved the original Star Wars movie poster animation.


As well as the 2001: A Space Odyssey poster created by another ds106 stalwart, Norm Wright.


ds106 is not just a course, it’s also the open web. And moments like this are a wonderful and welcome reminder of that fact.

    Nice! See you Friday, and I’m bringing a bunch of York College students to the talk. They will finally get to meet the Bava face-to-face. Likely reaction.

    Awesome, Jim! Always loved your Argonauts poster! Nice to see so many other talented pieces there. Makes me want to start digging through all my old #ds106 posts and picking apart my old work to make something as good as this.

      Funny enough, this made me want to do the same. This poster should actually not rotate animations, they should all be happening at once. There should be an orchestrated animation happening here, I need to figure that out.
