From Video to Animated Gif Portraits

Here's a trippy little video by Belgian artist/photographer Pierre Debusschere in collaboration with creative studio 254forest for Under/Current Magazine. For some this may give you a bit of inspiration. For others it will give you something to complain about comment on. But for me I personally like the animated portrait gifs that come out of this video as the 5D Mark III's multiple exposure feature has had me on a multiple exposure/light layering exploratory kick lately.

Under/Current Magazine: "Rising photographer Pierre Debusschere, together with under/Current's fashion director Melina Nicolaide, unfolds a story based on a dark present-day panorama of turmoil."

This is awesome! I wish that the animated GIFs would loop smoothly, but the concept is superb. 

One of the most annoying things on the Internet is animated gif avatars that don't loop smoothly. If you are going to do this, please do it right. The herky-jerky look also seems to have the psychological effect of making me tense. I just can't look at these for more than a couple of seconds.
