That is not a GIF, that is an MP4 file, but ok, that is a minor detail.
You need a program to draw the elements, a person, the screen, the shadow. Use a vector-based program.

I've made a script to split a layer to separate islands, it might help:
It' a part of a free Scriptorator scripts pack. Then you can run Layer > New Layer Based Slice from the top menu to create slices based on the result.
The technique is called solarization. It can be achieved in a b/w photo dark room, when the printing paper is exposed and already in the developing fluid for a bit, the room lighting is quickly turned on and off, so light areas get exposure too. Durations of exposure and development can be varied to achieve a variation of different results.

My answer is similar to Tetsujin's method, but created non-destructively using a Threshold adjustment layer, grouped with the image layer, then the group set to "Multiply" mode. A noise filter can then be applied to a purple background Smart Object.
For greater similarity to your examples, it's probably best to start off with a photograph taken with low ...
From original image - yeah, don't ask ;)

Select all, copy, alt/click mask, paste.
Invert. This should leave the black but make all the white transparent.
Add new layer, drop it behind.

Create a new Action, set a Function Key like F3 (without Shift or Control) and start recording.
Use Select > Modify > Expand and choose an Expand By value which is ...
Photoshop has a Grain Texture filter, and a Hue/Saturation adjustment which can also be used to colourize an image like that.
Filter > Texture > Grain - there are various types of grain which you can experiment with
Select the image layer in the layers panel, and hit the Layer Adjustment icon (looks like a circular half-moon). Choose Hue/Saturation - select ...
Actually, a screenshot could be better but I will try to explain you as I understood.
Let's think that you have an AI file with layers under layers and you need to control them in AE as seperate layers. At first gather all shapes and objects under one layer. After that choose the main layer and click the drawer button (options - righ top corner of the ...
Here's a modified version. This will scan subfolders for jpeg files (line 28), save a panorama with a name of the first jpeg file + -pano and will remove the jpeg files in the end:
