Cinemagraphs seem to be more and more popular among photographers. If you like this type of artwork, this video will be a real treat for you. Filmmaker Erick Flores Garnelo has made a short film created almost entirely of cinemagraphs. It doesn’t only demonstrate Erick’s talent and skill. It has such a special atmosphere that it will make you feel like you are somewhere else.
Last year I attended Midburn, a regional burning man event taking place in the hot Israeli desert.
I filmed nonstop for five days and created “We are Midburn”. The video ended up getting featured multiple big websites and news outlets, including the official Burning Man newsletter. Creating the video was quite the journey, but it also required me to extensively film non-stop during the entire event. So I pretty much experienced everything through a dusty camera lens.
When it was time to get ready for Midburn 2017, I decided I’ll hold off the video this year. I wanted to be more present in the event, and it wasn’t possible if I was to create a video. But I did have an idea to try something that has intrigued me for quite a while, and this year’s Midburn “Lucid Dream” theme was the perfect setting.
