Q&A with Hanna Turi on Her Cinemagraph Music Video "Heavy Heart"

May 29, 2016 by Mehek Seyid


More and more we are seeing members of our community embrace cinemagraphs as a storytelling medium. It's exciting to see their living photos executed with a larger idea and narrative and used in place of traditional mediums.

Swedish singer-songwriter Hanna Turi took this challenge to task for her new single "Heavy Heart", creating a music video to accompany the song that uses cinemagraphs. We are thrilled that we got to connect with Hanna to not only find out more about her shoot and music, but to also premiere her cinemagraph music video for "Heavy Heart" exclusively on the blog today.

Facebook Profile Video Contest: And the Winners Are...

May 16, 2016 by Mehek Seyid

When Facebook announced that Flixel was a part of their Profile Expression Kit, we wanted to get our community involved in the action immediately. We hosted a contest asking users to shoot their own personalized profile cinemagraphs and share them on our Facebook page.

And the winners of the Facebook Profile Video contest are...
