1 frame makes a difference in our sense of natural motion.

It is very interesting to hear Peter Jackson talk about the speed of film in his 2018 documentary about World War One. Cameras were cranked by hand, making the frame rate highly variable between 14-24 fps, giving the motion of those black and white images the typically strange timing we might be used to when watching the films of those early days. He went to great pains to adjust the timing of those films so they appear as time really passed, and he makes the point that even ONE FRAME makes a difference to our sense of what appears as natural. It is a very interesting ‘making of’.
