Follow in the footsteps of boundary-pushing filmmakers by incorporating cinemagraphs into your projects to tell your stories.
With all the new cameras on the market and all the various ways to distribute videos and stills, the cinemagraph stands as the perfect combination of two types of media. It’s an exercise in lighting as much as it is in directing, and you should consider the medium for your next project.
Whether you’re trying to build your motion graphic, doing graphic design, or cutting a cinematography reel, creating a cinemagraph can give your work that extra boost of creativity and originality that will land you future gigs. Let’s look at this stunning short film, as well as how to craft such images yourself here.
All shot with a Canon 5D mark III with Magic Lantern and using just a Zenit Helios 58mm f2 44m-4.
