So, I watched John Wick this week [Loved the soundtrack more than the movie] and decided to make cinemagraphs. It’s been a while since I made one. So, what is a Cinemagraph?
Cinemagraph is actually a series of photographs (mostly still photos) masked to focus only on smaller and repeated movements. And yes, it is in animated GIF format.
I use Photoshop. But the workflow is faster and there’re plenty of options when done in After Effects.
The term "cinemagraph" was coined by Fashion photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck. Have a look at their website.

Have you seen my son?
Evenin', Jimmy. Noise complaint?
What are you doing?
Looking at you.
Will you stop playing that fucking video game?
I heard about your wife, and I'm sorry.
A final gift from my wife.
How are you holding up?
I keep asking, "Why her?
You don't own me, punk.
I work with your father. All right?
Should I go?
Viggo, English, please. Come on.
Stay, goddamn it!
He once was an associate of ours.
They call him Baba Yaga.
I'd like to make a dinner reservation for 12.
Well, John wasn't exactly the boogeyman.
He was the one you sent to kill the fucking boogeyman.
I have a job for you.
I want to offer you this face to face...seeing as how you might find it personal.
Hey. Wick's at the Continental.
Welcome home, John.
And, as always...it is a pleasure...having you with us again, Mr. Wick.
If they're willing to break the rules of Continental, double the bounty.
I once saw him kill three men in a bar...with a pencil.
With a fuckin'...Pencil.
People don't change. You know that.
Times, they do.
Now, as I recall...weren't you the one tasked to dole out the beatings, not receive them?
There's a church near Cannon Court.
What about it?
It's a front.
It's where Viggo keeps his private stash.
It was just a fucking car.
Just a fuckin' dog.
When Helen died, I lost everything.
Until that dog arrived on my doorstep...
In that moment, I received some semblance of hope...an opportunity to grieve unalone.
Thank you, Marcus.
I know I can trust you.
They know you're coming.
I always liked you, Marcus.
The last of the old guard.
Shit! Goddamn, I knew he'd come.
What's fuckin' wrong with this guy?
No more guns, John.
No more bullets.
Just you and me, John.
That's it! John Wick is a cult - strictly choreographed action flick and try to keep count of Keanu Reeves' kill-streak. Loved the CG blood. We'll get to see a lot of dinner reservations made by John Wick in the near future with a sequel in progress and Lionsgate pushing for a 'John Wick' franchise!
