North Carolina 27540

Cinemagraphs are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement occurs, forming a video clip.
I’ll be talking about how, with just a little planning, you can create stunning cinemagraphs with the photography equipment that you already have.
There will be a demonstration of how to setup a shoot, and how all the post-processing is done to be able to create a variety of different cinemagraphs.
In addition, I’ll share an introduction to Affinity Photo and Final Cut Pro- The tools I use myself everyday to work faster and easier in a demanding agency environment.

Co-Creator and Lead Editor for the Food Network’s Dinner:Impossible and Restaurant Impossible, Scott Markowitz is a TV/Film editor and Visual Effects Artist with over 20 years. 3 years ago, Scott launched The Video Crush Podcast to help employeepreneurs everywhere escape their cubicle prisons. Today, he combines the lessons learned in a career of TV and Film to empower you with the skills to “Edit Yourself.”
