It's been a few months since we first wrote about how gifs have been taken to a higher art form with Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg's Cinemagraphs
. Since then we've seen others show us their own high quality work like Mike Pecci, who made us stop and stare at his Living Images
We can't get enough of this trend, so when we saw Ana Pais' series, Eternal Moments
, we knew we had to write about it. The 24-year-old freelance graphic designer and photographer creates these gifs from a music video called Keep on Dancing
which was directed by André Tentugal. Notice the muted colors and the subtlety. A blink of an eye, a rock of the head, smoke seeping out of the mouth...almost feels ghostly...
If you're interested in making your own, Photojojo recently put together a post
which gives you step by step instructions. Have fun!
