Ken Burns 2.0

I really enjoyed hearing master storyteller Ken Burns┬ádiscuss how his personal history helped give rise to his life’s work, and more:

You can read much more detail in this interview on The Atlantic.

Just as interesting to me, from a geeky perspective, is the way the famous & simple Ken Burns effect has morphed into something richer & more ambitious, imparting parallax movement to the various pans & zooms. In fact, the clip above prominently credits After Effects artist Elliot Cowan. Let’s hear it for Content-Aware Fill, “postcards in space,” and more.
