Cinemagraph-style Music Video Blends Motion and Still Photography

Directors Ian & Cooper created this clever music video for the song “Back to Me” by Joel Compass using cinemagraph-style shots. Each scene is a strange fusion of motion picture and still photography, as some areas look like a photograph, while other portions look like video footage. If you’re not familiar with the term “cinemagraph,” check out other examples of the technique we’ve featured in the past.

    Cinemagraphs are one of the best things to come out of digital photography. I wish I had the camera and patience to do this.

    Well Done!!! It’s good to see a concise storyline. Obviously you did a well thought out storyboard. Beautifully shot.
