A little something for lovers of old BW photography and animation.

Here’s an amazing short film titled “The Old New World” by photographer and animator Alexey Zakharov of Moscow, Russia. Zakharov found old photos of US cities from the early 1900s and brought them to life.

The photos show New York, Boston, Detroit, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore between 1900 and 1940, and were obtained from the website Shorpy.

It’s a “photo-based animation project” that offers a “travel back in time with a little steampunk time machine,” Zakharov says. “The main part of this video was made with camera projection based on photos.”


I couldn't find a YouTube version, so not embeddable (by the way, I think ATS should implement other sources such as Vimeo for embedding, they have very good and high-quality videos in there)

That was delightful. Now he should do one of Moscow. I think I would enjoy that too.

That was very cool, I particularly liked the shot of the Penn Station upper concourse which does not exist anymore.

If anyone was curious that was Al Bowlly singing in the background.

Al Bowlly is the s***.

Sadly he was blown up by a German bomb that did not explode on impact but when he went to help dig out rubble form a building in London.

That's just awful man.
I don't know a lot of his stuff but what I've heard I like... I love that pre rock and roll sound to music...there's something really special in the music and it sounds so nostalgic and earnest and full of feeling.

Beautiful

That's a cool little bit of trivia, and thanks, I'm actually in the mood for this sort of music today

I enjoy him greatly. He is always on our regular mix of 'dinner music' for when guests come over. He fits in well with the period style home we have and he was rather prolific. So between him and Edith Piaf you can play a few hours of them both without hearing a repeat.

Vimeo is TERRIBLE!!! If I had a dollar for everytime a Vimeo player stopped and/or skipped on me, I would be campaigning for the presidency right now.

As far as your OP goes. It is some amazing stuff. Kudos to the creator.

Check out Ray Noble as well. He did the arrangement and conducted the orchestra that Al Bowlly sang with.

Cool little video! It's hard to believe it was all from photos!

My dad was born in 1906, so it really gives me an idea of what his early experience was like! The world has changed so much!

I'm with everyone else. This was a awesome share! I passed it on myself too my "other" friends


That had to take some patience to put that all together. Man I love creative people. Now I'm off to explore this musician.
2 for 1 happiness!
