Miracle on 34th Street
Miracle on 34th Street (1947) by George Seaton with Maureen O'Hara, John Payne and Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle. Music: Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies by Tchaikovsky.
The movie was divided into small separate visually complete fragments or scenes. It is these scenes that were used for mosaic. Using separated scenes instead of randomly taken movie clips allow us to make mosaic more smooth and steady. We use out own scene detection software.
In the middle of the mosaic black and white movie frames were coloured to mimic colour movie poster. The title movie frame at the last part of the mosaic was left black and white.
