Aging 70 years in 4 minutes

This fantastic short video from Anthony Cerniello shows a person imperceptibly aging from youth to old age.

The idea was that something is happening but you can’t see it but you can feel it, like aging itself.

I would love to know how this was done. Benjamin Button-esque FX, I would imagine.

Update: Oh hey, luckily for me, this blogger named Jason Kottke posted this video more than two years ago and noted how the video was made.

Anthony Cerniello took photos of similar-looking family members at a reunion, from the youngest to the oldest, and edited them together in a video to create a nearly seamless portrait of a person aging in only a few minutes.

I think I’ll have to subscribe to this fella’s site. (via @jniemasik)
