I’ve recently been working on a series of 4K cinemagraphs that are, quite literally, out of this world. They were created from images captured by the crew of the International Space Station. In recent years I’ve been fortunate to be able to do some work for one of the astronauts who flew on the ISS. During his mission, he and his crew mates captured almost half a million images of planet Earth.

Having worked with this vast image library to create time lapse segments, I thought they would provide a really great subject for cinemagraphs as well. Cinemagraphs are a hybrid of stills and moving images. In contrast to a time lapse film, a cinemagraph allows you to take in the view and gaze at it for as long as you like.

Most of the space time lapse films you may have seen move very fast. The reason is that the images have usually been captured at 1 frame per second and are played back at 24 or 30 frames per second, making things move 24 or 30 times as fast as in reality. For these cinemagraphs I wanted a more zen-like feel. I wanted the experience to be as close as possible to how the astronauts see it. This meant that I had to slow the footage down dramatically, using the “optical flow” setting in Final Cut Pro.

The final step was to create infinite loops using an application called Flixel Cinemagraph Pro (http://flixel.com). The result was this series of mesmerizing space cinemagraphs.
