Incredible and amazing would be understatements to use in describing this project. Artist and filmmaker Anthony Cerniello shows the nearly imperceptible process of aging through this mind blowing video. The clip is titled Danielle, possibly as a reference to Anthony’s friend who plays a very important role in the creation of the video. At Thanksgiving last year, Anthony was with his friend Danielle’s family where photographer Keith Sirchio shot portraits of her youngest cousins through to her oldest relatives.
Each photograph was then scanned with a drum scanner, and Anthony finally selected photographs of family members who looked similar in appearance and had the similar bone structure. This was followed by animators Nathan Meier and Edmund Earle who morphed and animated the portraits, and finally touches by artist George Cuddy were employed to smooth out the details.
The result is the mind blowing video you see at top.
