GIFs are nothing new—those short chunks of animation designed to prompt laughter, titillation or just plain confusion. But some wizards have taken the GIF and turned it into art.

The guys—or girls—at If We Don't, Remember Me have focused on single images from films like Brazil, Blade Runner and even Metropolis and animated just enough to make them breathe with life and, sometimes, dread. And they capture the essence of a movie scene in a way that still pictures can't.

Here's just a taste of the awesomeness IWDRM has to offer:
