Description:

Subtitled An Illustrated Chronological History Of The Development Of Motion Pictures Covering 2,500 Years Leading To Cinematography In The 1800's, this Website presents a prehistory of Cinematography beginning with the cave drawings at Lascaux and the shadow plays of Ancient China through the "earliest-ever extant illustration of the camera obscura in 1420 and finishing with the first true "films," albeit very short ones, in the late nineteenth century. The site is structured as an annotated timeline with graphic illustrations but, strangely, no video. Researched, compiled, and written by Paul T. Burns, a Canadian film historian, the Website offers an interesting summary of humankind's fascination with light and its capacity to project visions of the imagination.
