in motion

We live in an age of motion. From GIFs and GoPros to Boomerangs and 360 cameras, static images are quickly becoming a thing of the past. As folks with a curiosity for all societal and technology happenings, we’ve been exploring the world of video as well (see our new site) and are sharing our experiments on Instagram. Follow in real-time @faucetheadcreative and check out a few of our favorites below.

Maybe you didn’t notice but in 2011 something started happening in the world of photography and blogging and it changed the game. Cinemagraphs arrived on the scene thanks to Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg and for four years now we’ve been following this revolution of sorts. Gone are the days of clunky, inconsistent loops and silly GIFs. Cinemagraphs are more mature, polished and, frankly, beautiful. Check out a few of our all-time favorites below and keep an eye out for the future of these little looping wonders. We think they’ve got big things in store.

autumn story

In an era of singles, streaming music and lackluster music television, I often wonder if the art of the popular music video has been lost. The mini movies used to bring scandal, excitement and a sense of awe to music and television. On the contrary, online media such as YouTube and Vimeo host an unimaginable amount of music content. It’s almost too much to digest. So where does that leave us? Personally, I’m left hoping the best rise to the top and videos like this come across my browser, even if it’s five years after the original publish date. Better late than never. Enjoy an Autumn Story by by Firekites and briefly welcome back that sense of awe I feared we lost.

something left, something taken

Sometimes it takes a bit of time before something great is brought to your attention. In this case, it took us four years to come across this dark comedic animation featuring a couple’s encounter with a man they believe to be the Zodiac Killer. Intrigued? It’s worth the ten minute viewing time and a peek at the making-of details here. Enjoy.
