Documentation on historic topics or on art and art history are often faced with the problem that there is not enough moving footage available. To circumvent this one can use static images, such as historic documents, photographs, paintings or drawings. But as the term indicates, such material is static. If used extensively it quickly drags down the esthetic appeal of a production. To avoid this animated collages can be used. For this details of the image are masked and digitally arranged. In addition subtle animation can be added. This makes it possible to presente otherwise static content in a dynamic way and hence better attract the audience.
