A Mesmerizing Aging Simulation Video
If there is a topic, which will always be interesting to the public, this is the problem about aging and especially video shooting or photographing how the time pass and how this affects us.
There are some famous projects, such as Anna Oliveira`s “before” and “after” photos for example and now we would like to share with you the newest project, directed by Anthony Cerniello. It is extremely touching project, which has never been done before.
Some time ago Cerniello was attending his girlfriend`s (Danielle) family reunion and took photos of everyone there. He was impressed by the astonishing similarities in their physical appearance and he chose the pictures showing the greatest similarities with Danielle`s facial structure, applied some more techniques and then asked Nathan Mayer and Edmund Earl to compile all of them into a video.
The result is amazing- it is strange for the eyes, but exciting to the mind. Each cadre looks like as if you are staring at an inanimate object. However there are very slow, seamless transitions between the images, so one could easily conclude nothing happens in these 240 seconds. However if you get this impression, check the first and the last image and you will realize there is a whole life between them.
