Okkult, a Collection of GIFs Taken From Unknown, Historical Videos
GIFs have been exalted to almost exasperating heights lately. And amidst all the over-saturation, genuine work from people who use the medium in interesting ways gets lost in the fray. Okkult Motion Pictures is one such group. The Italian GIF studio creates GIFs of rare, historical videos taken from the public domain. From forgotten educational videos to war propaganda films to whatever the hell this is, Okkult forgoes its “quirky Tumblr” status into being a bona fide educational tool. Well…sort of. But we love when people take something low brow, like GIFs, and turns them into something with a little more substance. Now if only we could say the same for 90% of the rest of the Internet.
