Steve Marsel’s Cinemagraph of the Brunswick School’s Doyle Family

Pictured above is one of Steve Marsel’s eight Cinemagraphs taken for [addlink url=”http://www.brunswickschool.org/” text=”The Brunswick School”] in Greenwich, Connecticut.  Brunswick is the leading independent day school for boys, nationally recognized for the strength of their academics, athletics, and the arts.  The school is known for the clarity and consistency of their educational mission, and the quality and character of our students, faculty, and alumni.  The Campaign for Brunswick seeks $100 million in capital gifts further these ideals and goals.  For the web aspect of the campaign, I was asked to create a series of images that grabbed the attention of the viewers of the site, preferably something they had never seen before!  Although the current version of animated gifs had been out for some time, they had no really caught-on, with one glaring exception – the on-line porn industry! If you think about it, Cinemagraphs and porn are a perfect match.  The device that separates a great Cinemagraph from all the others is a seamless repeating loop.  Some moving element that repeats itself in a “loop”.  So much of what that industry sells involves shots “loops” of motion that repeat themselves over and over again.  Once again – porn & Cinemagraphs are a great fit!  My challenge with the Brunswick School job was to come up with “repeating loops” that somehow related to the people in the photo and their connection to the school.  In this Cinemagraph, the Doyle family is pictured on the stage of the baker Theater on the Brunswick Upper School campus.  The Family made a substantial donation to the school earmarked for construction of the theater.  The houselights at the Baker Theater are programmable LED ceiling lights manufactured by [addlink url=”http://www.colorkinetics.com/showcase/theatre-entertainment/” text=”Philips Color Kinetics”]. The repeating loops of the lights made perfect sense and adds commentary to the image
