since every DSLR can shoot high quality footage there are just some view steps with photoshop to turn them into a Gif. Some Filmmaker could really benefit from Google Plus the same way as Photographer do already by adding these litte motion into there Frames.
There is also a way to play that anim Gifs inside Facebook not that smooth like on G+ but at least your art get a fast spreading around all social platforms even without any big fanpage.
only limitation is your creativity and vison
