Star Trek in Cinerama Widescreen

Nick Acosta of Cargo Collective converted scenes from Star Trek: The Original Series into cinematic widescreen images, as if it were shown in Cinerama. How’d he do that?

I was able to create these shots by waiting for the camera to pan and then I stitched the separate shots together. The result is pretty epic. It reminds me of the classic science fiction movies of the 50’s and 60’s. Suddenly the show has a “Forbidden Planet” vibe. Other shots remind me of how director Robert Wise would use a camera technique to keep the foreground and background elements in focus.

He stitched them together very well! See 34 of the enlargeable images in glorious color at Acosta’s website. -via Metafilter
