Travel back in time for a glimpse at how things were more than 85 years ago
Instead of rebuilding cities like New York, Boston, Detroit and Washington DC like a CG dinosaur, Alexey Zakharov used a technique where he sliced up antique photos and then carefully animated the various elements, like people, cars and buildings, to give the appearance of actual moving footage.
There’s still a dash of CGI here and there to recreate elements like smoke, water and weather, but the majority of this convincing faux footage started out as flat two-dimensional photographs.
