The First Movie


One of Muybridge's early gizmos to try to make his still pictures/motion study sequences "move". I'm not sure how he did this, perhaps he painted the images on, but that would mean painting a lot of nude women onto glass plates. Then, I assume, it would spin around and you'd look at it. There is no more than a second or two of animation here, but then, the "first movie ever made" ain't exactly Gone with the Wind either:

I can't post the Director's Cut here because I can't get it to come up. So that means another post. Sigh. Some day these will end, I promise!
