Filmmaker Anthony Cerniello, along with a team of animators and also a photographer, has created what is possibly one of the best face-to-face look at the aging process. “The idea was that something is happening but you can’t see it but you can feel it, like aging itself” said Cerniello. Unlike other timelapse aging video, Cerniello took a whole new route. To start the project, Cerniello went to his friend Danielle’s family reunion together with photographer Keith Sirchio and took photos of almost all of her family members with the photographer’s Hasselblad camera. They then sorted through the photographs to find which family members had the most similar facial bone structures. Finally, Cerniello had several video artists and animators combine the images into a single video using After Effects, 3D Studio Max and Nuke software. The result is a seamless aging process for a single person that is really a composite of several family members.
