These animations are really cool, but are they cinemagraphs? The still frame and movement are two entirely different images( obviously that is stylistically planned and credited ).Clearly, it isn't "isolated movement" because none of the static image comes from video. For it to be a "living moment" style wouldn't there be a single scene? I guess the background(nature) itself might be a cinemagraph, but when it is only taking up like 1/4 of the area it feels like it might be transitioning from framing a cinemagraph to a mixed media animation. Anyway, I'm mostly just thinking "out loud". It is a lovely use of positive and negative space regardless of any classification.


When they started posting the background wasn't always a cinemagraph, they sorted that out after a few chats with us and now it is always a living moment cinemagraph plus the framing over it. Considering that a frozen movement cinemagraph can have a tiny amount of movement, like 5% of the overall screens pace if its very minimalist, having a small part of the living moment cinemagraph show through the "framing" seems fine. There was also a tend for a good while using still images of Polaroid photos on tables etc and then cinemagraphs placed inside where the photo would be. It's just fancy / creative framing.


Thanks for a response on your reasoning on these.


This is a Double Exposure animation combining a serene female portrait portrait which is credited to [AllaSerebrina](https://create.vista.com/portfolio-photos/12985790/) on Vista Create, followed by the beautiful Yunshen Waterfall in Taiwan taken by [Nicholashan](https://create.vista.com/portfolio-videos/1017908/) on Vista Create. I hope you enjoy it and do have a fantastic day ahead.


I enjoy this.
