WATCH: Animated vintage photos bring the Old World to life

Travel back in time for a glimpse at how things were more than 85 years ago

Travel back in time with a little steampunk time machine. The main part of this video was made with camera projections based on photos.

Fascinating:

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.
