In addition, CineMax has also launched a Tumblr site dedicated to BANSHEE GIFs (http://bansheegifshop.tumblr.com which lets viewers experience a variety of cinematic short-form sequences from the show that offer a taste of what's to come in the action-packed series.
On the Tumblr "GIF Shop," created by New York agency Campfire, the online HUB of shareable animated GIFs will give fans of suspense and edge-of-your-seat dramas access to the most intriguing and provocative moments from the new series - from brawls and fights to narrow escapes and looks and reactions. A great way to introduce viewers to the fun and fast-paced show, the site also allows for all 80+ GIFs to be captioned and made ready to "GIF to a friend" via social media.
The BANSHEE GIF premiere and Tumblr are a culmination of a GIF program celebrating the GIF format and its ability to remain relevant in modern culture while harkening to a classic age of the internet. CineMax has also partnered with fan sites to distribute custom-edited GIF trailers and GIF animated "collectable" lobby cards - paying homage to the classic movie-marketing tool, but with a modern twist.
