Archive photography is the cornerstone of many documentary films and TV shows and these classic photos also prove very popular across social media. Rather than simply showing a still image or zooming in on the photo, we wanted to offer our clients a way to bring the photos to life in a way the audience has not seen before. A common technique to create moving images from still photos is a 2.5D cut out method. Our approaches take this much further, whereby we rebuild the image in 3D space, giving a much stronger sense of depth and realism akin to being able to explore a historical freeze frame in time. In addition to our artistic approach to colourisation, where we record the process to produce a wonderful video of the colour being painted into frame.
