Our inspiration was based off of two previous projects.  One of them being Humans of Cambridge and the other one being reflections.  Humans of Cambridge cinemagraphs displays a wide variety of Cambridge life.

Process

We started brainstorming in order to see what we wanted to base our cinemagraphs off of.  We were thinking of different ideas such as Humans of Beaver or Humans of Cambridge.  We decided to do two ideas reflections and a continuation of Humans of Cambridge.  Reflections came to us base off of the firefighter and firetruck reflection we did earlier in the year.  We went searching for different reflections.  We used car mirrors, rims, windows, and puddles.  For Humans of Cambridge we went to the MIT campus and took videos of the tours and the students.  We also walked down to Kendall and Harvard Square to incorparate more scenery.  In cinemagraphs you need a repeated fluid motion.  One motion that will not look choppy if it replays over and over again.
