Greg, thanks for your response. I think the methodology I'm
trying to implement is very close to what you brought up.

Umm... I've only seen modern one that uses special screen
using microprisms. But it makes sense that people already
tried the old tech versions.

What would be a good keyword to use for google search on those
examples? I'm very curious to see, but "cheesy portraits
1970s" gave me pictures that were either bad or cool and not

But any of these close to what you meant by cheesy portraits?
