The video does not show Hurricane Dorian but is a digitally-created artwork. US-based photographer Brent Shavnore had uploaded the clip on his Instagram account.
In an email conversation with AFP, he said that the video is an animated version of a composite image he created. The video was created by Instagram user TheGlitch. “Yes Instagram user TheGlitch was the person who animated the storm. I combined the two Shutterstock pictures together to create the artwork. That video on YouTube is my tutorial explaining how it’s done,” Shavnore wrote to AFP.
A digitally created artwork and animation was shared on social media as Hurricane Dorian from the coasts of Florida.
