With this cinemagraph, I animated my friend vaping. Though the normal approach would be to animate the smoke, I wanted to something unexpected and animate him instead. I picked him and his vape to be my subject because I have a particular love for smoke and the way it forms in the air. For once I don't really have a deep meaning to my work, it was just a concept I thought would be interesting to test out.
For my object in movement, I chose to use the Marvel bobble heads attached to my dashboard. I picked these objects because they were easily accessible and had a very interesting kind of movement. Again, there wasn't any deep meaning to this gif, but I do have a love for Marvel, especially Thor.
The hardest part about this project is perfecting the mask so the gif looks purpose. As you can probably tell, both of mine are just a little off. If I had to give advice to a future student about this project, I would advise them to take more time getting the erasing as exact as possible when creating a hole in the mask.
