Oldest Roundhay Garden Scene 60FPS AI
For non-film aficionados, the Roundhay Garden Scene is basically an 1888 short silent actuality film recorded by French inventor Louis Le Prince at Oakwood Grange in Roundhay, Leeds, in the north of England. It’s believed to be the oldest surviving film in existence, but what happens when you use AI-powered neural networks to upscale it to 60FPS? Read more to find out, thanks to Denis Shiryaev.



The film was made at Oakwood Grange on October, 14 1888 and it features Louis’s son Adolphe Le Prince, his mother-in-law Sarah Whitley, his father-in-law Joseph Whitley and Annie Hartley,all leisurely walking around the garden of the premises. The original sequence was recorded on Eastman Kodak paper base photographic film using Louis Le Prince’s single-lens camera, but during the 1930s, the National Science Museum (NSM) in London produced a photographic glass plate copy of twenty surviving frames from the original negative, before it was lost. These frames were later mastered to 35mm film.
