My cinemagraph reveals the gradual evolution of the Chinese character “Long” (dragon). I found the original video on Vimeo and created the cinemagraph out of “Flixel”. Flixel is a very beginner friendly software: in order to make a cinemagraph, users only need to erase the part of the image they want to see moving. However, through the use of Flixel, the challenge was to find a portion of a video in which the background stays completely still. As a beginner, though I spent great time looking for such a scene, I finally settled down with this entirely empty backdrop. Albeit having some struggles, I enjoyed the process of this creation and am currently trying to create more.
