Living Photo: Create a Cinenamagraph with your iPhone

Class Description:

Cinemagraphs usually take a long time and effort to create. You can create something on photoshop but it could take hours of work to achieve a result that is extraordinary and above average.

In this class you will learn my technique on how to plan and produce an amazing cinemagraph ready for publishing in a fraction of that time that it will take on traditional tools.

Now they exist many apps and software that can help you achieve the quality you are expecting and you can save a lot of time that can be used in the planification of your cinemagraph.

I’m going to teach you how you can create a pro-quality cinemagraph in just a couple minutes and it will look like you spent hours of work on it.

Project title:

Create a Facebook Profile Video

Class Project:

For the class project you’ll create a living photo of yourself that tells something about who you are. You will learn step by step how to create your own unique cinemagraph and post it as your Facebook Profile Video and then share it with us in the project section.

For this project you only need:

A Facebook account and an iPhone

A) The first assignment will be to start your class project answering this questions about you. If you do this early it will be much easier to complete your project. I’ll explain later how this is going to work out. The questions are:

  1. Do you prefer outdoors or indoors?
  2. What is your favorite hobby that your friends know that you like to do?
  3. What is your favorite color? 
  4. What is your favorite physical attribute of yourself? (your hair, your abs, your perfect eye brows, an interesting looking mustache, you name it).

B) Film the video that you are going to create a cinemagraph with it. Share with us a still image of the video. You can take a screenshot of your favorite frame.

C) Finally, create your Facebook Profile Video (Cinemagraph) and share the link in in the project section.

This is a possible ad that I'll be running on Facebook Ads Platform to promote my class: I want to keep it private while I'm still finishing up the class. But here is the password for you guys since I will like you to see it and tell me what you think :)
