GIPHY Studios, the creative production team at GIPHY, shares recent sources of inspiration:

This documentary is one of my all time favorites. It’s not just an incredible story of how pop culture as we know it was changed because of the ambitions of one person, but also one of the most inspiring messages about creativity and art I’ve ever seen.
