Meet Danielle, a five-minute video by Anthony Cerniello, a filmmaker who has directed music videos for Arcade Fire and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Danielle is his latest project depicting the human aging process — from birth until death — in five minutes. While most video and photo projects depicting the aging process or other changes in the human body rely on steady documentation, Danielle did not take a lifetime to complete.
Instead, Cerniello traveled to the real Danielle’s family reunion and photographed her female family members from different generations. Then he edited and animated the photos in the correct sequence to create the life-coursing composite.
