1. Class Introduction
To get started, I want to talk about what a cinemagraph is, because really, it's sort of a made-up term. There is no actual definition that you'll find. Different people have really sort of different ideas about what it is. So, the way I like to define it is it combines the qualities of a photograph, which is really just that sort of snapshot in time. It doesn't have a beginning or an end. It just is this one sort of moment as opposed to a video, which tells a story. A video has a beginning and an end, and once you've watched the entire duration, you can derive the story. Cinemagraph really just combines these two things. You get some cinematic effects, motion. But you get that static photograph feel. You interpret your own story from that still frame.

Fascinating course for anyone who wants to know how to make a cinemagraph. I thought Chris went a little fast for me but I could replay those parts over and over until I got it. This is not a general knowledge course but more of a niche course for obtaining specific know-how on making a cinemagraph. Overall very good!
Chris is really a great teacher: the after effects tricks explained in this class are very interesting indeed!
For anyone having to create a poster or a book cover or anything creative with Photoshop, this is a great course. I refer back to it again and again when I start some of my projects.
