When is a still not a still?

Jim Emerson recently posted about cinematoGIFs, animated stills (that’ll do in your brain!) that try to capture the essence of a scene. The results are evocative and almost hypnotic… I challenge anyone to make such a not-quite-still out of a Michael Bay movie, though!

Edit: Not sure whether these actually work embedded in a WordPress post. When you click on them – or follow the original link above – you should be able to see them in their full, animated glory, though!

Make sure to check out the rest of them!
