I've had an idea for a long time to make a pseudoR11;3D, to animate photos. I worked on this project for five years, studying the essential methods and testing the graphics. And when I heard the LIGHTS song I realized that the video should be Soviet retro.
At first I searched for some old soviet shots of my family photo-archives. Then I asked my friends to find some private snaps in their albums from that time - they began bringing me old black-and-white and rough color photos.
Soon Nashe Radio (the main Russian rock station) joined the search process: after the announcement on the radiowave and on the site Nashe.ru thousands of photos were sent to me from people who were raised in the USSR.
I looked at tons of photos and I then I realized that my initial intention to make a a strict black-and-white music video was not very accurate. Contrary, my childhood was very bright and colorful. That's why I decided to paint almost every shot in the end...
