Eadweard Muybridge

I came across this the other day, it’s a short video telling the story of Edward Muybridge who is considered as being the first person to create moving pictures.

The film is narrated from the perspective of Eadweard’s abandoned son, Floddie, and the entire tale is seen through a 19th century motion picture device known as a mutoscope.

The point of view gives the story a haunting quality, while the old technology helps better set the historical mood of the tale. A striking story about a man who shot his wife’s lover, abandoned his son, and then accidentally discovered moving pictures.
