Humans of Earth

Below are both HTML5 and somewhat letterboxed embedded YouTube versions of the video; if the first one doesn't work, try the second!


I caught the bug to make this photo-video-morph while looking at some great albums in Reddit's Human Porn subreddit (totally Safe For Work, not actual pornography) and Pinterest. If you would like to know more about the individual photos including their sources and see them uncropped, here's an album.
The morphing was done using Fantamorph, and ffmpeg was used to convert to HTML5-friendly VP8. My first thought was to make an animated GIF, but Photoshop crashed halfway through calculating its predicted size! Trust me when I say it would have been several times this 6 MB .webm file.
The post title is a riff on the wonderful photo blog Humans of New York.
(Any resemblance to a Michael Jackson video is purely coincidental and only pointed out to me after the fact by my much more savvy sister).
