A new AI enhanced colorized and upscaled film of 1920s Paris. Flappers, bobbed hairstyles, cafes. All brought to life.
I published my first AI restoration of this footage in February 2021. ” A Day in 1920s Paris.” This is a much improved version. I hope you enjoy it.
1920s Paris in New AI Color & Sound
Look for silent movie star Pola Negri at at the now long forgotten treehouse restaurant bar – Robinson Pavillon Lafontaine.
“Robinson” was a popular guinguette ( a bar where you could drink and dance outdoors). Located at 32 Rue de Malabry in a small commune Le Plessis-Robinson, south of the city.
Today the pavillion is still preserved, but the bar and restaurant and treehouses are long gone.
Only the ghosts remain of those bright flappers of the roaring twenties.
AI Restoration Process
Colorized, frame by frame, using AI deep exemplar-based colorization techniques. Then cleaned and upscaled to 4k 60fps. Finally a soundtrack was added for an immersive time travel movie experience.
