A Concise History of the Origins of Cinema
A New Documentary
The intention was to keep this documentary to under thirty minutes, but this meaning not all the possible details could be included. As anyone who has ever studied, or has a keen interest in film knows the history is vastly complex with many interlinking events. However, in the future, I would like to make a full hour long version that would include further details and with better production values. Of course, at an hour it would still not be able to include all the details, but would be far more comprehensive.
Hour-long version additions (not in chronological order):
Robert W. Paul.
The Sheffield Photographic Company, whose ‘Daring Daylight Burglary.’
Cecil Hepworth’s pioneer ‘Rescued by Rover.’
Charlie Chaplin/Vaudeville and music hall influence on early film.
