I've been thinking and trying multiple effects on pictures in After effects but I can't seem to achieve the animation like in the video. Also tried searching the internet for some sort of tutorial but I wasn't able to. This has been on my mind for days. Hope someone can point me in the right direction.
Those all have very short loops. You could use any of the distortion tools (like Liquify) to push stuff around and then crossfade back to the original.
Thanks for the heads up, It worked!
Glad to help.
