Travel back in time to 1900s NYC with this crazy realistic video

Alexey Zakharov, a photographer and animator in Moscow, created the short film “The Old New World” using old photos of New York, Boston, Detroit, Washington D.C. and Baltimore. Zakharov used camera projection based on the photos, which capture the cities from 1900 to 1940, to create the surreal, realistic video.

Watch the photo-based animation below (the good stuff starts at the :40 mark.)
