Altering the Zapruder Film

(Page 8

Well what the hell is this kind of photo/picture doing here ?

Over the past 10 years or so there have been many comments regarding the possibility of alteration, was the equipment available, did the level of talent required to do an alteration of the Zapruder Film exist? IF in fact an alteration was possible at all? Throw in for good measure, naysayer's of the alteration theory stating that: “ ANY technique employed in an alteration attempt would be spotted at once, it's not only foolish to dattempt it, the equipment wasn’t even available at the time so it couldn’t be done with any reasonable hope for success. All baloney ...

Well, take a good look at this picture I submit for your consideration. What the hell is this here for? Hang on for a second! It's called "Fading Away" by Henry Peach Robinson.This is a *composite* image. There are ten (10) seperate images that make up this image. During Robinson's era this was called; "a modern photographic technique - combination photography."

I'm sure Jack White has seen some of these images, they are in my estimation prime examples for most modern day photographic techniques, both still and motion. Motion Picture Optical Printing is one of the direct results of this type of photographic experimentation.

No cut lines visible (in today's lingo -- matte lines) film density even across all 10 image pieces which make up this one image. Quite a feat for those day's. Any Zapruder alteration would require the mixing of 5 maybe 6 sources TOPS!

You think we had the technology, techniques, craftsmanship and the folks that could pull off the Zapruder Film alteration in 1963-64? The picture your looking at was composed 4 years prior to the CIVIL WAR, that's correct, 1858.

I'll be posting about 5 new images tomorrow (Monday) afternoon or evening showing a few more (1962-4 era) contraptions used in Film Optical Printing and a few more matting techniques. Then, I'll get into how I think the Zapruder Film was alterated...
