Story Behind Those Stunning Cinematic Gifs

Story Behind Those Stunning Cinematic Gifs
Here at theMET, we're always looking for creative projects that catch our eye. More than anything, we love posting about work that pushes boundaries, showing our audience something that has been changed, flipped or spinned into something magically different. Then, we see it as our job to find out the story behind such projects. What inspired the artist or photographer to start down that path? What do they hope others get out of their work? A few days ago, when Met member Mark Huckabee put up a post called Astounding Animated Gifs, we knew we had to dig deeper. Before we go into that more, enjoy these lovely cinemagraphs that they sent directly to us. What's been the response like, so far, on your animated gifs? Which of them is your favorite piece and why? What do you hope others get out of these works? Which gif has been the most popular and why do you think that is? Were you inspired by other gifs or anyone else before you started this more artistic ones? From Me to You website

Amazing Animated Photography by Jamie Beck Beautiful animated photos by New York photographer Jamie Beck. Don’t miss these photos. They are amazing.

A beautiful but creepy vision of the "smart glass" future Two things: First, considering the touchscreen maps at my local shopping centres ae almost always down or only half work, and smeared with public finger goop, the maintenance factor would be huge in this kind of world. They'd always need constant repairs, cleaning, and upgrading. And the other thing is, though the touchscreen concept works okay at a small handheld level, if every single button you push has no tactile response, that satisfaction of a physical reaction to pressing a button, it can get quite exhausting for the fingers. Typing, which would be slowed down on a vertical or flat horizontal surface anyway, would be very painful to tap away at, with your fingertips repeatedly hitting solid glass with no give.

Beautiful cinemagraphs by Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg There was a time, not too long ago, when the term "cinemagraph" was being thrown around and internet culture gravitated toward this amalgamation of still shots and modest yet aesthetically effective movement. New York-based photographer Jamie Beck and her counterpart Kevin Burg first coined the term last year, gaining a lot of recognition for their cinematic images with subtle movement. My Modern Met even had the opportunity to interview the creative forces behind the perfected animated gifs. Since then, the duo has continued to develop breathtaking gifs, often focusing on fashion, and share it on their blog From Me To You. The motion in each image exhibits just the right amount of movement. Whether it's hair or clothing hit by a slight breeze, dangling jewelry swaying back and forth, or the endless burning flame in an otherwise frozen world, the calculated action serves a purpose in adding to the mood or aesthetic.

Showcase of Parallax Scrolling Effects in Web Design The parallax illusion is one of the coolest effects to hit the world of web design. This showcase rounds up the best examples of websites that have a scrolling parallax effect. Some use the effect to add a subtle treat to the website’s background, whereas others use the parallax effect more prominently to create an exciting browsing experience. Andrew Harlow Today I had the opportunity to ask one of my favorite bloggers a few questions. Kate is the creative force behind foudre.co, and she also runs an incredible fashion editorial blog. Besides curating scans and runway photos, Kate also creates animated “gifs” that have become quite popular. Her blog has always been a favorite of mine, and it was a true pleasure to be able to chat with her. When did you first become interested in fashion?

Never Be My Friend When I'm bored, I browse through my friends' Facebook images, choose my favorites, and draw them. Sometimes I take... liberties. Let's just call it artistic license.

We got in touch with Jamie Beck and her partner Kevin Burg to ask them about their "cinemagraph" technique where they combine still photographs and video to create these magnificent mini films. by agnesdelmotte Apr 28
