Stabilised Footage Of The JFK Assassination Is Unsettlingly Real

When it’s bouncing around and playing back at a jittery 18 frames per second, the infamous Zapruder footage of John F. Kennedy’s assassination feels almost unreal. But when it’s stabilised with additional interpolated frames bringing it to a steady 30 frames per second (like we’re used to seeing on TV) it suddenly becomes much more real.

With computer-generated in-between frames, you’ll want to take this particular footage with a grain of salt, but YouTuber antdavisonNZ has given us a remarkable and eerie new perspective on the events that unfolded almost 50 years ago. [YouTube via Boing Boing]
