How can I create this type of bright static image for Video

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a video that has a lot of narration about a topic that would be hard to get footage for. I'm not good enough to draw or animate the subject, so I'm looking for other options. I came across this video, which had narration over well-done static backgrounds zooming in, out, and panning. It uses historical photos, etc, which I think I could adapt to my topic. There also seem to be some other effects going on as well.

Are these just static images being panned over, or is something else going on? They seem to be really bright and pop out. Any suggestions for achieving the effect?

I’ve only watched the first minute or so of the video but the part I have watched seems to have been created by using multiple still images which have had areas masked off so that they can be moved independently creating a sense of movement (a bit like parallax but not quite).
The layers behind the nearest one seem to have been given more blur the further they are away from the viewer, and various filters may have been applied but that would depend on the original images and what result you want.
If you do a web search for “2.5D” (without the quotes) you should find a lot of help for doing this.
