Laurel & Hardy’s city in 3D

By

In 1998, Piet Schreuders and “a team of computer graphics experts” from Utrecht dedicated their time to recreate Main Street, Culver City in digitized 3D form. They used “historical records to design a digital version of Culver City as it looked in 1920s-era Laurel and Hardy films and other motion pictures from the Hal Roach studio,” as BoingBoing says.

We wrote about Schreuders here on this very blog not two weeks ago. BoingBoing also links to a copy of of Schreuders’ other magazine, Furore, which is devoted entirely to describing the process: “The Shortest Main Street In The World.”
