Artist Anthony Cerniello has crafted a pretty remarkable video, Danielle. He took the opportunity at a family reunion to capture generations of people and then use the most similar of them as a starting point for his animators to create this seamless ride through the ageing process.
There is such loving attention to detail here with the gentle life added to the character, keeping everything calm and allowing the casual change to slowly wash over her for the full 5 mins. I would love to see a behind-the-scenes look at how this was made – how do you inject that much natural life into photos and keep it all hanging together so nicely. Bit more info on the process in the Colossal article.
So somehow a suite of photos can be transformed using After Effects, 3ds Max and Nuke to create this!
