Face-GIFer lets you build a cartoon gif in the style of the cartoons found on Fox’s new Animation Domination High Def series.
There’s not much better on TV than Animation Domination High-Def and there’s not much better online than a good old GIF. Animation Domination High Def is a series of cartoons that air on Fox late at night on Saturday. Its first two shows are called Axe Cop and High School USA, and more shows are scheduled to be aired starting next year. All of Animation Domination High Def’s videos feature the type of strange, irreverent humor found on other cartoon blocks like Adult Swim. The content caters to a young adult audience, and Fox’s product differs from more traditional cartoon programming in that it ambitiously wants to operate both online and on the television. The program’s website offers shorts and .gifs for its fans to view online.
Part of Animation Domination High Def’s online approach to content creation is the Face-GIFer, a website that lets fans create their own .gifs (the file extension and term for a short, looped, moving image – in case you haven’t spent much time on the internet lately). The website allows users to create a .gif of a face animated in the style of the cartoons made by the folks at Animation Domination High Def. The gif-creator on the site makes each user’s .gif unique by allowing them to pick out different types of face shapes, noses, ears, eyes, mouths, hair, bodies and backgrounds. It also allows users to name their faces, and it makes it easy to share those unique creations with fans and other friends. If you’re a fan of Animation Domination High Def (if not, you probably should be), the site is a fun way to connect with the series’ programming by creating your own content.
