An image with a story.
Seeing a black and white photo of a bygone era usually makes us forget that the world was full of colors.
And yet, if we could see this color photograph we would achieve a deeper understanding of the past.
New restoration and animation techniques coupled with historical references and research allow us to color black and white photographs and break the barrier between the past and our contemporary perspective.
The final presentation of every element (colored photographs, texts, movements) is done in an effective and accessible way to the television audience. The end result is an aesthetically pleasing and unique TV product that magnetizes the viewer.
Giving life to memory
Contemporary techniques give the photographs a breath of fresh air, they acquire movement, depth and come alive in three-dimensional space.
The camera enters the photograph and captures the moment from different angles. Faces and objects start moving, digital elements are added to the scene, compositing a lifelike moment in time.
From start to finish you experience how an image of the yester days comes to life using advanced colorization & animation techniques of today.
Visuals inspired by the era
The final presentation of the archival information is done in an effective and accessible way to the television audience. The end result is an aesthetically pleasing and unique TV product that magnetizes the viewer and enriches their historical knowledge.
