    This is actually really cool. I am actually fairly new to using reddit so I didn’t know there was a thing like this. I thought it was mainly all memes. I’ll be sure to search for something like this and see if I can find one. I’ll have to try and look harder.

    I enjoyed seeing Reddit being shown on this! I always use reddit, but I never thought of it to be used for films and audio! I’m definitely going to be looking into Reddit for art and information in the animation side of things!

    Reddit is just a cool place to pass information around. I didn’t even think of it for this type of thing. Cool post though, with the first video you posted. That shot is so famous and really cool how it was done in a single shot.
