It can be said that background video is no longer a new design trend anymore, however there is an arising style called Cinemagraphs. This is a kind of an animated GIF which can actually cause the viewer illusion by repeating a minor movement continuously. By taking a series of photographs or a recorded video, you can take advantage of image editing software, and put the photos or video frames into a coherent loop of sequential frames.
