Oddly Satisfying Loops

The purpose of this is to put the same on social media channels like Instagram where the video playback is generally by default set to repeat(loop) the video. So by creating a loop in the video itself you are setting up the viewer to be almost hypnotized by either the mechanics of what he/she is viewing or just the fact that the video is attention-grabbing. The challenge is to make the video tantalizing, so the viewer keeps watching unaware of the video already being over and repeating itself.

Creation Tools: Cinema 4D , AfterEffects, Octane, Audition

The video originally of only 5-10 seconds and could be looped for 30 seconds or 30 hours and it would still be a perfect loop. Atypical to the usual loops the audio for these videos has been edited in a manner where it is a perfect loop as well.


One of my approaches was showing people the oddly satisfying videos and asking which scene they found appealing and merge those with appealing motions


Lastly to make them go through impossible tasks/ obstacles in a natural - almost seamless manner. It had to make sure the first and last frame of the video is are the same so that it makes a perfect loop. The audio was taken into Adobe audition and edited to be in perfect sync too if it had to be looped continually it would be hard to dissect where it stops and begins again.
