For this assignment Animated GIF Alternative Cover a 5 Star assignment we were to revisit the apocalyptic novel cover from earlier this semester, but make it an animated GIF this time. I was unable to make the background of my original cover animated, so I found a clip that included a helicopter, like the helicopter that was in my original alternate book cover. I chose to go with an animated background as well as animated wording so that way it would draw in the readers attention. I wanted my GIF to not only be animated by text but also by background. I made sure to put the text in a way that did not occlude the focus of the GIF which is the helicopter being attacked by zombies. Here is my GIF below I hope you enjoy.

I know there is probably a way to do this, but I guess I just don’t know how at this point. Here is my original alternate book cover below:
