The story of film
Last week I was shown a documentary on the history of film. From Edison's first light to the multi-million dollar block busters, film has evolved to suit us. The Luminaire brothers began a revolution of their own in France, and are considered to be the fathers of film, with their train that amazed the people by going past the screen. Even the use of bubbles brought us to the films that the world has learned to love. The smallest steps bring further along the Odyssey of film, and things that we see as second nature, but in the beginning, these were mind boggling discoveries.
