General | December 30, 2020

Do you love wildlife and history? How about old films? Then here is something just for you.

A film originally produced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1939 titled “The Wapiti of Jackson Hole” is now digitally restored. A man named Jeff Quitney digitally restores old public domain films by “cropping them to remove uneven edges, correcting the aspect ratio, and applying one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction and video noise reduction.”

In addition to elk near Jackson, Wyoming, it also features grouse, ducks, moose and other wildlife species.

Go here to watch it.
