The festive season is in full swing, and we’re pretty excited about it. December is a time full of twinkling lights, hot beverages, close friends/family, and snowy nights. This also makes it a great time for creating cinemagraphs! To spread some of that festive cheer, we created 3 free cinemagraphs that you can use in your digital marketing this holiday season. From Facebook Ads, to email campaigns, to social posts, cinemagraphs are a great way to capture attention, drive engagement, and make your content stand out. Check out our holiday cinemagraphs below, and download them for free!
Celebrate the Holidays with 3 Free Cinemagraphs
Share the cinemagraphs on any social platform, and they will auto-play and auto-loop. Just make sure to use the video (.mp4) file so that they display in the highest quality possible. We’ve also included GIF files of each cinemagraph, which should only be used for emails! Looking for some tips on capturing some festive/winter themed cinemagraphs of your own? We’ve got a blog that shares tips on composition, colour, and more. Check out our post and learn how to capture beautiful winter cinemagraphs.

As we celebrate the end of 2017 at Flixel, we’re also celebrating an amazing year for cinemagraphs. Leading brands now use them in marketing campaigns. Photographers sell them for thousands, and successfully grow their businesses. Cinemagraphs even made appearances on TV and on giant digital screens in Times Square. With all of this excitement, we wanted to give a little something back.
Marketer. Photographer. Designer. Business owner. No matter who you are, cinemagraphs help to tell visual stories in ways that photos and videos can’t.
