Cinemagraphs - the interface between images and video

Cinemagraphs - the interface between images and video | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

"Cinemagraphs are still images that contain within themselves living elements allowing a glimpse of time to be experienced and preserved. Cinemagraph is a technique of blending the effects of images and videos. It was introduced by a New York fashion photographer Jamie Beck, in collaboration with motion graphics designer Kevin Burg"


A far cry from the crude animated gifs common on the web in the 90's and early 21stC web, these examples examples demonstrate the scope and potential of this new medium  I think what might be interesting for educators is the power to focus on, and highlight some hidden detail, a nuance that might be missed in a video or still image. 


For example, what details would a geographer, a mathematician, or a linguist choose to emphasise?


This article also provides a useful guide on the technical aspects of making cinemagraphs. If you want to explore creating animated gifs on a mobile platform then there are some apps available including  Giffer.  Some more examples here.

Frequency™ for iPad on the iTunes App Store

Frequency is a free iPad app for discovering, aggregating, watching and sharing online video.  


Frequency is easy works rather like Fipboard,  in that you can search for your favourite channels and sources to add to the Tuner for quick access to the latest videos. Perhaps what might be most  most useful is taht you can connect to you Facebook Twitter and YouTube accounts and watch the latest posting from you networks or on YouTube your favourited and uploaded videos. As with other, similar online tools, putting in some time to explore will bring its rewards.


I look forward to seeing what other education professionals think of Frequency, or how they use it

Game your Video: Stop Editing Videos, Start Gaming Them

Game your Video: Stop Editing Videos, Start Gaming Them | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

This new app for iPhone 4 and 4S offers an interesting and creative approach to video editing by allowing you to control and add effects to a video clip in real time as it is played. Even more interestingly the tools can also be used whilst you record a live video sequence.


The special effects include motion, video and audio effects including, slow motion, zoom and reverse,  and voice over and voice transformation. The video filters include B&W, old film and colour moods.


I think there's is a lot of creative potential to explore and  play with here, for educators. Hopefully interesting examples will be posted to YouTube, et al soon.


Now in App store for £1.49
