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]


    Great use of the original video. It's a shame we can't see the Secret Service agent in the following vehicle who may have been the one who fired the fatal shot accidentely.

    Pity the yanks didn't try this with G. W. Bush. Would've done the world a hell of a favour.
