This was a very good, concise tutorial on creating a cinemagraph in photoshop. The loop is the key to a good cinemagraph. I would like to see how to make the file size smaller than 7mb. One other suggestion is to choose a clip where there is action that is masked. The chosen clip doesn't really need to be masked since nothing else is moving. A true cinemagraph would have a part of the image that would naturally have motion but is still like a photo. But none the less, this video shows how to create a cinemagraph.
Amazing class. I really enjoyed it!

Very well explained. Kind of complex, but the videos are timed nicely and the result is awesome. I think some sort of overview in the beginning would be helpful because the effect isn't really seen until the very end. Overall highly recommended!
