The Old New World Video

An amazing look into yesterday.

Here’s an amazing animated short film called: “The Old New World,” which will give you a glimpse into the days gone by. The animation was created by photographer and animator, Alexey Zakharov, of Moscow, Russia. Zakharov found old photos of U.S. cities on the net from the 1900s-1940s era, and he brought them to life.

The photos he used include New York, Boston, Detroit, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore.

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.”
