How much I’d give to see an old photo of my grandfather come to life in a video in (simulated) three dimensions, as if the camera were there, moving in on that face and the cigar and his great old car and the old house I remember from my childhood. I can’t, yet, but Miklos Falvay, a Hungarian media design artist, used 3D software to create such an effect for a documentary, “Motalko.” It’s amazing. I heard about it on BlenderNation via Twitter. Please watch … it’s lovely.
Great pic. It’s a fantastic car – 1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe. New it was under $900 and considered a great buy. It looks like Gramps went with a two tone paint job which would have been extra. Also notice the old Bias Ply tires – it is tough work to drive a large vehicles with those. Just thought I’d share a little automotive history with you.
I love that photo, too. Thanks for the awesome details! From this photo I learned that, as a journalist, check out anything your mother tells you against two sources. When I mentioned this car in a column I got the year of the car wrong, because she didn’t have it quite right. Oh, the letters I got!
