Two things:

1) as a web graphics guy, I can't believe how poorly some of these are done.

2) as a web graphics guy, I don't really get why this is any different from what's been done severla hundred thousand times before, but now with a new name.

I really like them, altho some are better than others, obviously.

These are how I imagined the wizarding photos in Harry Potter's world moved when they first talked about it in the first book.

Later, it became too much I don't like the idea of people running in and out of the frame and waving at the people looking at the photo.

Our art director really wants to do one of these on the cover of our digital edition of the magazine. Looks cool.

Most are very cool, especially when you understand how time consuming it is to do. The Jack Nicholson one is definitely creepy. And the lady with the red eye shadow.

As a web graphics guy, you aren't a photographer.

They're artful, as far as that goes, but I'm dismayed by the prospect of an animated GIF renaissance. The last thing I need is for my aunt to start forwarding collections of "adorable" "cinemagraphs" to me.

I'd like a bottle of wine like this. But I wouldn't like a glass like this.

The ones that don't work for me are those that use obvious merging of stills and moving images. The woman with the globe and the string lights are lovely because the whole image is alive (even if the globe image is a composite of both the curtain and the woman). The images where everyone is still but for one person, or part of a person, it gets too fake. The ones that work are quite pretty.

I won't consider them cool until I can print them out on plain paper and they still move.

Um. Animated gifs?

As with anything, it's just another tool for someone to do stupid or cool things with.


Also, I think this is what 65% of Anime is.

The "batch of cake/brownies mix" is unrealistic, as you don't just pour that into ONE place or spot, but more evenly overall around, within the pan, so as to spread out that into every corner. I'll even carefully 'whirl'/'spin' the pan itself as well upon the countertop, to use 'centrifugal-force' and achieve a more evenly spread layout from this too.

They remind me of the newspapers from Harry Potter.

The subtler they are, the more interesting they are, to me anyways.

These remind me of point-and-click adventures from the Windows '95 era. All it needs is the creepy Return to Zork music.

Yeah, I looked at those here (about to click the link) and I feel a weird revulsion in the pit of my stomach as well. No idea why, though!

Really depends on the subject matter, choice and relationship of moving parts, and what is being "said" with the piece.

Fake or not, this one resonates with me, though it would be much better if the pause between page turns was longer. What I like about it though is that it seems to capture that feeling of being at rest (as if the world has stopped) while the world moves around you, only this is like the converse of that because the world around him is not moving, only he is.

No. The post-irony generation is all about remix: taking things from previous generations, reassembling them in dime-store-window fashion, not to make any artistic statement, but to merely give a jab with the elbow as if to say, "Get it? Huh? Do you get it?"

All that matters anymore is recognition of the source. "Oh, that's Lion-O crossing the Potomac. I see."



But sometimes (like, say, Lion-O crossing the Potomac) it is awesome:


And what is the difference between the validity of this remix and Rauschenberg, Ramos, or Rosenquist?
