The lovely guys over at BuzzFeed liked my Rush Hour App feature so much, they asked if I would freelance as one of their BuzzFeed Contributors. How could I turn down such an awesome opportunity!?
My first mission? Turn the highlights of Sherlock: The Sign of Three into 8-bit game style GIF animations.
Here’s what I came up with:
1. Lestrade hotfoots it to Baker Street.
But it’s not quite the emergency he thinks it is.
2. Watson and Mary get hitched.
… while Sherlock ponders if he will lose his best friend.
3. The stag-do bar crawl.
“443.7ml of beer, please.”
4. Which inevitably leads to…
5. But who is the Mayfly Man?
Come on Sherlock, use your powers of deduction.
6. The Mayfly Man is caught!
… and Sherlock expresses his love (and talent) for dancing.
If you haven’t seen the episode, you probably wouldn’t have a clue what’s going on here, however the response has been phenomenal to say the least. With 30,206 views, 630 Facebook likes, 239 Facebook shares and 303 Tweets at the time of writing, I can’t stop smiling from ear to ear.

Keep an eye out for Episode 3, due next week.
