This is pretty far down the “retro” rabbit hole, but I find it fascinating. Back in the 1920’s, cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene took his new-fangled color (or was it “colour”?) motion picture camera to the UK. The results were recently restored, and now a film maker has recreated his 1927 work shot-for-shot in an amazing split-screen experience.
I love how while some shots are virtually identical, while others look like they are on different planets. It’s definitely worth a few repeat viewings to catch all the details.
