Animated GIF, made to upload to a public submissions space on the website for The Photographer's Gallery's Born in 1987: The Animated GIF exhibition.
How this was madeThis was created by importing an iPhone video of the pug into Flash, then drawing a large rectangular shape on a layer over it. The rectangle was created as a symbol in Flash, with it's alpha (transparency) value set to about 17% so you could still see the video underneath it. The colour of the rectangle was varied along the animation time using motion tweening to give the varying colorisation effect.
The 'Export as Movie' process in flash was used with the animated GIF setting.
