Possibly :) Lower resolution is not necessarily the best, though; for 
screenshots, things tend to become quite blurry when resizing. Instead, one can 
reduce the font size that emacs uses and make smaller screenshots.  See 
https://github.com/cpitclaudel/company-coq/ for examples of this (the 
https://github.com/cpitclaudel/company-coq/#snippets-and-smart-commands has 
auto-generated gifs, though they use a different technique).

About 20 seconds, I think: ImageMagick's gif generation isn't the fastest. I 
hear that gifsicle is better; it could be worth exploring!

 might be useful too :)
