The first "motion picture" 

1890s Etienne Moray created the first "motion picture" using the negatives on film reels

Horses galloping - Etienne Moray


First film shot with the "Cinematographe" camera
called "Workers leaving the Lumiere factory at Lyon"
Lumiere = "light" in French
Lyon = City in France

People ran out of the theater in Paris because they thought it was real!

1896 - Arrival of the Train by the Lumiere brothers

Silent films:
  - audio (sound) was not yet invented
- An orchestra or piano played alongside the screen inside the theater as the film rolled.

  Georges Melies produced "Voyage to the Moon".
  - 15 minute fantasy film
  - hand-painted film reels created color in the film!

1910 Produced by Edison Studios, this is the first adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

1915 Alice in Wonderland 

Plan for today:
