Grandpas and .Gif's

"This is what our grandfathers are like when we tell them that DITTO's patent-pending technology digitally augments glasses onto a 3D rendering of your head, called your DITTO, so you can virtually try on glasses for look and for fit!"
Here at DITTO, we're interested in a lot more than just technology and fashion.  In fact, among our small but growing team, we represent seven countries, five languages, every type of dietary limitation imaginable, a 17" height differential, and very different answers to the question of favorite movie genre.  That said, we all seem to be pretty keen on the movies.  Who doesn't like the movies, anyway?  Whether we indulge for the sake of pure, mindless entertainment value, or for a more intellectual undertaking of artistic analysis and debate - we all enjoy a good movie every now and then.

The next best thing to a movie (okay, not exactly the "next best thing," but let's call it that for now) is an animated photograph a.k.a. .gif.  Recently, we've seen a rise of .gif based Tumblr pages with mostly humorous angles, many of which are copycats inspired by the best funny gif blog out there, #whatshouldwecallme, which was actually started by a friend of a friend of DITTO!!  

Anyway, back to the topic of film... One of us recently stumbled across a gif-based Tumblr called "If We Don't, Remember Me."  IWDRM for short, it's a gallery of living movie stills.  Unlike many of the gif-based Tumblr pages out there, this one is über artistic and thoughtful.  So, not everyone at DITTO is as die hard of a fan as some of us, but there's something there to appreciate for almost anyone.

Today, we've highlighted a post that, at a glance, hits close to home for us.  Working with a high-tech product like DITTO's virtual try-on technology, we're used to getting blank stares in response to the explanation of what a DITTO is, and what we do here.  With regard to the .gif above:
