The theory behind making moving images was known long before the advent of photography, but the introduction of photographic processes, able to capture a fleeting moment in a fraction of a second, soon led early pioneers to think about what was originally known as animated photography. This book tells the story of those early years when movie comers were used only by professional film-makers. It then describes the advent of amateur cine equipemnt and the growth of film-making as a popular hobby.
