My arts journey starts here


Hi,guys! Starting last week, my lecturer asked me to make a mystical- surrealism cinemagraph and a mysticalsurrealism poster using Yogyakarta fieldtrip documentation which was taken during mid-term break.

So, here is the mindmap to get many options. I have 4 options:


  1. My inspiration came from a mystical story about 2 banyan tree in keraton yogyakarta. If you can pass through those 2 banyan trees while closing your eyes without get stray, your dreams come true.
  2. My isnpiration come from the Taman Sari aisle which was so long and it remains me of the connection between the aisle and the water fountain.
  3. My inspiration came from the word “High Dream”. The story behind it is when you just watched your dreams that is so high until get through the cloud and sky from¬†from below.
  4. My inspiration came from the mystical story which states that Taman Sari aisle can penetrate to Parangtritis beach.
  5. Cinemagraph: My inspiration came from an eye surrealist imagery. So, I decided to put Parangtritis Beach in the eye and “me” as the tears .¬†Then, I put the cinemagraph of water fountain in the eye. So, the story is a person who cried happily when she saw the beauty of Taman Sari water fountain and Parangtritis beach

So, here are the step-by-step of making my own cinemagraph:Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 3.10.59 PM Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 3.10.47 PM Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 3.10.18 PM Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 3.13.01 PM Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 1.44.37 PM Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 1.44.34 PM Screen Shot 2016-05-09 at 1.43.33 PM 1.

4. Drag the video copy to new layer, so I have 2 layers.

5. Cut the video

6. Click on the video group 1 copy arrow. Set the scene where I want to animate, click the opacity stopwatch. The starting opacity must be 100%.

7. Do it once again to make the end keyframe, but this time, I set the opacity to 0%.

8. Create layer 2 by shift-option-command-E, but before that, I need to click on the part I want to animate.

9. Bring the postion of the end of each layer parallel to each other

10. Click on the layer mask for the layer 2.

11. Click brush (the one on the top of layers channel).

12. Brush only the object I want to animate. Before I forgot, I have to change the foreground color –> Black on the top and White behind the black foreground color.

13. Save for web –> Set to GIF, set the diffusion, tick on transparency, image size (Width: 1000 px and Height: 563 px), animation: looping options–> forever

14. Click preview to see the cinemagraph on the website.
