The History of the World in Four Maps via Google Maps Mania

The animated map above shows the changing borders of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa during the Twentieth Century. It is a a pretty good illustration of how geo-political developments demand frequently updated maps.

I created this animated map using Mundipedia. Munipedia is an interactive map which shows country borders for different dates in history. Enter a date into Munipedia and you can view how the world looked in that year. For example enter the year 1984 and you will see a divided Germany, split into East and West Germany. Skip forward a few years and in 1990 the map shows just the one Germany.

Home School: How KLAUS Was Rendered via Tom Preston on YouTube

This is a quick summary of how the film Klaus was lit and colored based on research and a few clips demonstrating the technology used.

Please keep in mind this is based on a handful of interviews and demonstration clips I’ve found online and may not be 100% exactly how the process was done, but I’ve tried my best to summarize the process as clearly as I can. The whole process is still being kept rather secretive and the information is limited.

I freely admit I might be wrong about some of the finer details.
