23 Movie Posters Transformed Into Trippy Neon Animations
Michael Whaite, an animator from England, is getting a lot of attention for reimagining famous movie posters into neon sign GIFs. Once you see them, you’ll wish more movies were advertised Whaite’s way.
“I wanted to design an animated neon movie sign, just for fun,” Whaite told MTV News, “and I thought Ghostbusters [was] ideal subject matter—all those glowing ghosts and proton streams. I uploaded the animation on Tumblr and the response was really positive, so I continued designing more.”
Whaite’s nifty GIFs have become so popular—they constantly go viral on sites like Imgur—that he designs them under the name Neonardo. A bar in Australia even made his very first neon animation, a Ghostbusters sign, a reality.
