Cinemagraph… let’s have a go.

I keep seeing these pop up in my feeds…’Cinemagraphs’ – a posh way of saying a looping gif. So I thought I would try one out. As I have not bought a photo manipulation program this decade.. this was done on Image Ready CS2. A simple mask on the area of movement and away we go.

So here is Eckie in my village hall, counting himself in – forever!

Counting in the song forever…

Trying to get close to 1mbps. So it should look nice….

Ecki – Back on Your Side

[ ?posts_id=580687&dest=-1]

First single from Richard Ecclestone’s debut album – ‘Punchdrunk’ filmed in Norwich 2003.

Filmed with a single Sony VX1000 with a wide adaptor for the overhead shots.

The boxes shots were shot one at a time with the musicans miming to playback on their own, then put together in the edit.
