Wanted to take a moment to talk about why I’m so giddy about gif'ing the CATS 1998 video. It’s been done before, not like I’m the only one with that idea and capability. The movie’s 22 years old, by now every millisecond of the movie has been gif'ed and print screened at least once. This film holds no secrets anymore.
I was a fan of the video right at the beginning, from
1999 to 2003. Back then the digital world was a different place.
There was no Tumblr or YouTube. Literally. YouTube started in 2005,
Tumblr in 2007.
The main way for fans to communicate
was through a handful of Yahoo groups. Some people made their own free homepages and put up
collected pictures and information, a lot of whom are still running
today and provide new fans with valuable information. PC’s didn’t have a whole lotta room in them and uploading stuff online was slow, so all the pic’s from those old homepages are minuscule.
From 2003 and forward, technology
has skyrocketed. PC’s got more roomy, tools for making video
snippets became available and sharing content online has become increasingly
Up through the years thousands of CATS fans have come (and gone) in online communities, all celebrating their love for this quirky musical and its brilliant (yet blurry) filmed version. Everyone exploring every scene of the movie, looking for a little funny or cute moment. And as we all now, CATS fans are a creative bunch so it’s safe to say that a lot of them have made their own screenshots, videos and gif’s. (and copious amounts of fanfics and -art) Today you can easily make anything with free software, and share whatever, whenever and whichever size you want. And that’s awesome! Really awesome!
That’s where I am now, with digital movie files, photoshop, gifmakers and terabytes instead if megabytes, finally being able to do stuff that I wished I could “back then”, and enjoying the video that has entertained fans for over two decades.
Smile ! Smiling looks good on you :)
