One of the most fascinating videos to be circulating the web this week is a new clip from filmmaker Anthony Cerniello, titled Danielle.
Cerniello had photographer Keith Sirchio shoot portraits of his friend Danielle’s family with a Hasselblad camera (which is medium format and produces super detailed negatives). The images were then scanned using a drum scanner, and Cerniello selected subjects with the most similar facial structure. The photos were then put through some amazing digital editing and effects by animators and a digital artist.
The result is bizarre and beautiful. The video shows a slowly transitioning face, set to sound. The transitions are slowed so perfectly that it’s impossible to tell where one portrait starts and ends – fascinating to watch.
Check out the video above.
