Sydney GIF Booth FAQs

How does a GIF Booth work?

We have a mounted ipad, and model-type ring light that produces complimentary lighting. The Sydney GIF Booth attendant will simply ask if you would like a photo or a GIF (boomerang) and facilitate either to be taken, then text (or emailed) this to your phone allowing you to save or upload it to social media. The GIF/photo frame will also have a digital watermark of your logo or event name (we work with you to produce this).

How does a GIF Booth differ from the older style photo booth?

Firstly, we are digital. In the 90’s it was cool to put photoboth strips on the fridge or your wall. Now we put pictures and experiences (GIFs) on our social media wall (facebook, instagram etc.). We are a social media booth that offers not only photos but also moving GIFs (boomerangs). Our GIF Booth is fun to use and even more fun to share and tag.

What age group is best suited to using a GIF Booth?

Okay, it’s true; some very young and very old people don’t understand how to upload things to social media. In fact, they don’t have social media. But in all honesty, making boomerangs is fun. And people as young as 5 or as old at 85 love the interactive creation of what is often a fun/funny GIF.

What would deem a location or venue not suitable for the photobooth?
