1897 Melbourne Cup flipbook video

Amazing restoration of a century-old flipbook into a three-second film by the NFSA:

“Video technicians put the newly digitised pictures together in the video edit suite to re‐create the animated effect experienced by flicking the real thing. In the initial version of the video, the images bob up and down more than the winning jockey, so they had to be stabilised as can be seen in this before and after clip.”
