So for the past year or two Cinemagraphs have increased their popularity over the internet and in audiovisual projects. Cinemagraphs are still images or still parts of a video where a repetitive movement/action happens. This gives a subtles effect when applied in a part of a whole video in which you are essentially “freezing time” but one element still has life.

I find it very interesting and simple, nonetheless, if used in a trailer or video, it should not be used constantly because I think by doing that the timeless effect could be lost.

Here are some very cool cinema graphs from Stanley Kubrick Movies and a tutorial on how to make cinemagraphs. Hope it’s useful for someone as it was for me.
