…bout a man named Brady.
What used to be complex can now be done in the privacy of your own home with under $500 worth of digital video equipment. Back in the late 60’s and early 70’s, The Brady Bunch television show opened with a tic-tac-toe board effect containing the head-shots of each member of the Brady Family. First Mike, then Carol, then the kids. One by one, they would show up, looking straight into the camera at first, but then looking up, down and at various angles as if they were looking at one another. While I can’t find any data as to what that 1 minute opener cost, I can imagine that nothing of that nature was cheap back then. In fact, I believe it was changed only 3 times over the life of the TV show.
That was then.
Take a look at what this guy has done. Yeah, it’s a little weird, but still, it’s amazing how easy it is for an individual to reproduce something that use to take a team of people, multiple camera shots, vast amounts of editing (to film no less) and at least a month of production time.
Ain’t technology grand?
