Cinemagraphs: Gifs of the Future


A cinemagraph is a partially animated photograph in which a subtle movement or action occurs. They are created by taking a series of continuously shot photographs or a video and converting the frames into a GIF. The first instance of a cinemagraph appeared in 2011 from fashion photographer Jamie Beck & graphic designer Kevin Burg who introduced an early version that featured models during a fashion shoot. The name ‘Cinemagraph’ comes from the cinematic quality of the image that still holds the traditional principles of photography. Here are some eight cinemagraphs from some of your favorite films.

the tree of life looks like any cam picture of a waterfall.  That could be live footage of some place near Mt Rainier.

The Chinese (buffets) have had these for years.  They usually depict a waterfall or fishtank.

You can't do this with an app. it's done with video frames in photoshop with 1 static frame with a mask so you can see the isolated motion animated underneath. If that makes sense...
