Cinematographe, A History [Video]

Posted on August 14, 2009

Found this short, condensed history of the creation of cinematography. For something so short it’s pretty thorough. It has a lot of the famous first things ever shot, as well as the original cameras (or pretty good reproductions). Then it kind of becomes a joke when they try to condense modern filmmaking into the span of a minute. And they skipped over the discovery of the concept of editing, which always blows my mind to think of editing as something that had to be discovered.

I would love to know what that crazy German commercial is that they show filming in the opening.
