Welcome to the final February Friday, folks.
And now: the videos…
This is extremely impressive.
It looks like they were actually in the movie. So crazy.
Definitely making the rounds, but outstanding, so here it is.
“He” being Joe DiGiovanna, using a custom-created setup that’s pretty ingenious.
I think it’s a little obsessive but still super interesting.
“Restored with neural networks 1911 New York footage taken by the Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern on a trip to America.”
It’s not completely perfect – especially the colourization – but it is impressive. I love the long shots where you can make out individual cars and horse carriages in the distance.
Created by Denis Shiryaev.
This is incredible work.
What an interesting time for film restoration.
“The history of ramen features cameos from The Yakuza crime syndicate, the U.S. Army, and a businessman who turned a simple idea into a worldwide convenience food. Ramen is so much more than a cheap and filling meal.”
From Mental Floss, who I usually don’t like this much.
Suggested by Kate S. (who loooOoOoOoOoves ramen.)
And that’s that! All Friday Video’d up!!
See you next week / month. Happy Friday!
