Sunshine, Sunshine

This is one of the animated GIF assignments I chose to complete for three stars. This assignment required me to select a video of my favorite musician. To be completely honest, I do not have a favorite music artist. I enjoy a broad range of music and what I decide to listen to depends mostly on how my day is going. Therefore, my “favorite” can change daily.

The cloudy skies, frequent thunderstorms, and drop in temperature over the past few days is what inspired me to chose “Sunshine” by Matisyahu to create a GIF. The particular part of the video I use I chose simply because I found it inspiring. Matisyahu is throwing away that extra weight he is carrying around, which in this case is a book bag filled with sand. Then he takes off on a motorcycle into the sunset. Pretty corny, but I think we all need to be reminded to get rid of the junk holding us down and then walk away.

This GIF was created using Gyazo, which I found really easy to use. All I had to do was download the Gyazo program and record the part of the video I wanted. Then the GIF was created, url copied, and uploaded here!
