WMAS, as the name suggests, was born from a love of making awesome shit. We are a collective of creatives and tinkerers who love making things together. So when we heard that Twitter was to be hosting a #GIFparty to celebrate GIF search reaching 100% of users, our creative juices started to flow because who doesn't love a GIF?
Cue the next two hours being pretty unproductive in the batcave as we hunted and sent round our favourite, and dare I say it, generally inappropriate, GIFs.
Fortunately, our chief crayola eater brought us swiftly back on track with the suggestion of a choose your own adventure style Twitter story. At this we all jumped about and searched for 'excited' GIFs wasting another half an hour.
We saw two ways into this:
1. Continue searching for our favourite GIFs and if possible the most used or famous GIFs and try to mash them into a story.
2. Create a story and then find appropriate GIFs to fit it.
We ended up with a mashup of the two. Starting with the idea for the story of finding your way to the #GIFparty and the obstacles and events which occur on your journey and shoehorning in a couple of our favourite GIFs at the same time.
So without further ado, I would like to invite you to join us on our journey to the #GIFparty...
