There is a way to make motion posters into a huge Hollywood marketing tool. Keep trying, you can do it! (Warning: Auto-Sound.)

"Conan The Barbarian" was one of the first attempts at a motion poster. It…could have been better.

"Conan The Barbarian" was one of the first attempts at a motion poster. It…could have been better.

Pros:
- Flying birds in the background.
- Pioneer attempt opening the door for other studios to try too!

Cons:
- Mostly just a big poster you move around with your mouse.
- Auto-play sound. (NO!)
- Not a GIF but a "sharable" link. There isn't even an embed feature so click thru to see it in motion.
- No ability to save to desktop for sharing later.

"The Hunger Games" realized their target demographic loves social media, home of the GIF, and marketed accordingly.

Pros:
- FIRE!
- Lots of motion.
- Embeddable.

Cons:
- Still not a GIF, making it slightly more difficult to share.
- No ability to "Save As".
- Auto-play sound (NO!)
