My Posterized 360 Car
With GIFs becoming very popular among bloggers, a Toronto-based company known as Flixel Photos released an iPhone app that lets users create moving images, even better than GIFS I suppose. It finally bridges the gap between still photography, GIFS, and video.
What Flixel app does is bring life to your car photos with a swipe of your fingers and instagram-like image filters and interface. Super easy and very creative.
It’s interesting how the developers of Flixel app namely Phillippe LeBlanc and Mark Homza are greatly inspired by Cinemagraphs of artist couple, Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck. Cinemagraphs are images where some parts of it are moving like a moving train, hands playing with strings, hands clapping but the image is entirely still.
According to Homza in an interview with Mashable, ““What Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg did is completely reformat the GIF format and art form by merging the gap between photo and video. So they positioned themselves as photographers with an element that is in motion, that’s in movement.”
Flixel app developers provided the same technology to us iPhone users for free! It’s like Cinemagraphs, Instagram, and Hipsmatic combined.
