Tactile Portraits can take old photos and illustrations and turn them into dynamic, dimensional, and beautiful animations. The process usually takes only a couple of hours, and can be set to music, if you'd like. The cost ranges from $25 to $75. The 2.5D animation concept was inspired and imitated from the works of Pat David.
Here is a fan animation that Tactile Portraits created. This was done entirely from scratch, animating a six-page comic story from 1993.
