Bill loves discovering archive materials which he transforms into an animation, or to be more precise, into a photo with moving elements incorporated in it. He also talks about the tools he uses for
animation: »I find Adobe After Effects and Photoshop indispensable when combining multiple assets into a GIF. In this pretty simple GIF I used After Effects to animate the ornament and composite it with the image of the pigeon. I rendered it as a .mov file, then imported it into Photoshop as
an image sequence. In Photoshop you have better control over the GIF compression which allows you
to make adjustments to the image quality, frame rate and file size. Once I made those adjustments I exported the final GIF with Photoshop.«
