2.5d documentary photo sequences

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm wondering if anyone can give me some links of stylish 2.5d photo manipulation used in documentaries and or film?

 

I recall watching a Rap doco with stylised design and 2.5d motion? I thought it was Made in America: Bloods and Crips, but doesn't look like it and I can't find the example anywhere!

 

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

James

The kid stays in the picture

 

Great doc if you love film, great doc period.

 

I think this film really kicked off the whole 2.5 D parallax from archive photos trend.

 

Ha, I actually worked on 'Kid' and developed that look before it got yanked to Edgeworx.

 

Just my sad little shout out, but I'm proud of that movie.

 

Microdot.

You should be proud, Microdot - I was given 'Kid' as a reference for a documentary project that I worked on many moons ago.

 

I'm with anothername in believing it to be the film that started the parallax style.

 

However, one of my favourite 2.5D parallax sequences has to be Magnus Engfors' 'Suddenly' -

- from around 2008/2009 I think.

Thanks, I appreciate it. It's funny that it was in the right place and time to spark a trend.

Then of course it was overused and used poorly in a lot of ways too but that's inevitable.

 

Definitely loved all the great examples that came afterward.
