Capture The Moment - Half Photo Half Video: Cinemagraphs Come To Microsoft Cliplets

Robin Good: Microsoft Research has recently released its own authoring tool to create cinemagraphs, by utilizing short video clips in which, only an element is kep "alive", while all others are rendered as a traditional still photo. 


From Wikipedia: "Cinemagraphs are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs. Cinemagraphs, which are usually published in an animated GIF format, can give the illusion that the viewer is watching a video.




The term "cinemagraph" was coined by U.S. photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck, who used the technique to animate their fashion and news photographs beginning in early 2011."



My comments: Cinemagraphs / cinemagrams is a new emerging visual art form with great potential. It captures "moments" in a unique way, providing a new exciting and infinite exploratory space for the artist/author creating it. I'd recommend it as a "core" topic in all visual communication courses. Start experimenting with it yourself on your PC with this very tool from Microsoft, or on your iPad/iPhone with Cinemagr.am



For Windows PCs only.

[VIDEO] "Neural Rhythms": Neuroscience Meets Tap Dance by Maddie Schwarz

Neurons, the cells that comprise our brains, each fire with distinct patterns and rely on one another’s communicative signals to produce the larger rhythms which carry out our thoughts and actions. Listen a little closer, and you’ll find that tap dancers talk in the same way, all the while relying on the 100 billion cells keeping time within their cortices.
