Neon Holiday Sign:

At first the file size was enormous. It was over 350MB after rendering from AE. I decided to cut the frame rate to 8 fps and set the animation to just 3 seconds, in addition to reducing the size of the sign (kept the background size). After many, many versions and variations I ended up with a file size of 1.7MB for the animated gif >
