Sometimes the best cinemagraphs are the result of spontaneous thinking. We came across one a few months back from one of our Flixel wizards, Rocky Montez-Carr, who found inspiration on a day out and pursued it immediately with an empty parking lot, a spinning car, an iPhone and the carsick-prone but enthusiastic participation of his creative partner and wife, Helen.
