#GIFsmetHarry is a series of animated GIFs each based on a Dutch saying or expression and the scene in Harry Potter in which it occurs. The loops attempt to represent both the literal and intended meaning of the expression, as well as the scene in Harry Potter in which the saying appears, with surreal and humorous results. Representing the sayings in this way helps me to remember them as I read Harry Potter to learn Dutch. The scenes are created with paper on a multi-plane animation stand in my studio in Rotterdam.
