24hourhomepage.com — Week 15 — Is this a Matrix? 🦋
tl;dr: Last week I started reaching out to 25 podcasts. Three have gotten back to me for an initial chat and another one is already published! I’m doing a Podcast Blitz after my talk at js.la is posted. Finally, I wanted to demonstrate how expressive 1FPS gifs can be in telling a story so I made a meme website: isthisamatrix.com
Last week — in my effort to make the best 24-hour “movie” on the internet and get better at sales and marketing along the way — I reached out to podcasts and created a meme making site to demonstrate 1FPS story telling.
# More podcast interviews!
Of the 125+ podcasts I’ve found that might be interested in hearing about 24hourhomepage.com, I reached out to 25 this week. Why so few? I think my message will be stronger if I can refer them to my recent talk at JS.LA. Unfortunately, that won’t be published until 2 weeks from now.
# Is this a Matrix
Since I won’t be doing my “Podcast Blitz” for another two weeks, I decided to work on a creative gif tool to demonstrate that 1-frame-per-second gifs can be inventive and fun:
A simple site where you can assemble up to 60 images from the 1999 masterpiece The Matrix into whatever narrative you want.
I had the idea of compressing an entire movie down to 60 individual images played at 1FPS and 1 minute of run time. Sort of like HitClips from the 90s.
So I set out to compress The Matrix into 1-minute gif. I think I did an alright job.
We’re going to a wedding this weekend so I wanted to do work that could lead to more async and slow growth (hence isthisamatrix.com).
Try creating your own “alternative Matrix” stories!
Along with a few direct emails, I’ll be using https://justreachout.io/ to chat with journalists and bloggers.

Question for you: What movie do you consider a masterpiece?
