In preparation for presenting "All Together Now" at Cleveland Public Theatre's DanceWorks series, TMP worked with our resident video artist, Jonny Riese, to film short videos at MOCA Cleveland.

At our video shoot, Jonny suggested that we create cinemagraphs. And we asked him... what are cinemagraphs?

Cinemagraphs are still photos with minor, repetitive movement. Here is an example:

Creating a cinemagraph is fun. You start by filming video:

And then you overlay a still photo over most - but not all - of the video. The video left uncovered gives your cinemagraph its movement, leaving you with something like this (we've converted to GIFs for easy sharing):

To see more cinemagraphs, you can look here, and you can read more about them here.

Have a look below at the rest of the cinemagraphs that we created with Jonny (and see "All Together Now" next weekend at Cleveland Public Theatre - tickets here!).
