CR: How long does it take you to put one together? And can you tell us a bit about the programs you use to create them? Is there a limit to how long the animated sequence can be?
MDV: I usually spend anywhere between one to four hours on any single gif. I typically will use some combination of Cinema 4D and After Effects to create the animations and Photoshop to actually save out the gif file. As I alluded to earlier, keeping a gif under tumblr's file size limit is a big part of the technical and creative challenge of the whole process.
