Cinemagraphs of People and Objects Spinning on an Axis


RRRRRRRROLL_gif is a project by a group of friends in Japan that comes together to create two cinemagraphs each week. The images feature people and objects rotating around a single axis.

    the fourth one, of the girl spinning around her finger, seems to be more of a gif than a cinemagraph, but still awesome!

  • OmeGa

    you do realise, that all of them are gifs, right?

    A Cinemagram is a jpeg which contains a gif element, or in layman’s terms, only one bit is moving while the rest is completely still.

    While, yes they are are technically .gif files, they are not gifs as the internet at large knows them.

    Now look at the finger-spinning one. It stands out from the rest.

    How does one get a gif element inside a jpg?

    If you actually look at these images, they are all gifs. The reason the finger-spinning one looks different is only because a tripod was not used, do the background is not completely steady – so it looks more like normal video.
