“ An introduction to The History of Film:

If one is to trace the true birthplace of film, one would have to trace it all the way back to the dawn of mankind itself. Through man's development he learned to communicate. Passing on information, finding the means to record data, and gaining the ability to express himself through symbolic imagery. This documentation and evolution of data passed on from one generation to the next, is the basis by which eventually, film, as we know it evolved. And though technology has made unprecedented advances in all facets of our modern world, the basis that had been laid down those many thousands of years ago, remains very much the same.

Precursors of film - Wikipedia: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Precursors_of_film.

Werner Herzog quote: "The artist painted this bison with eight legs, suggesting movement - almost a form of proto-cinema."

Start: {1827}: First still photograph taken, using a glass plate technique Claude Niepce's photograph the 'View from a Window at Le Gras' took nearly eight hours to expose.

Milestones in Photography - National Geographic:
//photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/photos/milestones-photography/.

{1832}: Joseph Plateau and sons introduce the Phenakistoscope. Like other toys of its kind, the Phenakistoscope was one of the more successful illusion toys. Pictures on one disc viewed through slots in the other, appeared to move when the two were spun and viewed in a mirror.

Phenakistoscope - Wikipedia: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenakistoscope.

{1834}: Another illusion toy - the Zoetrope was introduced by William George Horner. The Zoetrope used the same principle as Plateau's Phenakistoscope but instead of discs the pictures and slots are combined in a rotating drum. Zoetropes were widely sold after 1867.

Zoetrope - Wikipedia: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoetrope.

{1839}: Henry Fox Talbot makes an important advancement in photograph production with the introduction of negatives on paper - as opposed to glass. Also around this time it became possible to print photographic images on glass slides which could be projected using magic lanterns.

Henry Fox Talbot - Wikipedia: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Fox_Talbot.

{1846}: Important in the development of motion pictures was the invention of intermittent mechanisms - particularly those used in sewing machines.

{1877}: Emile Reynaud introduces the Praxinoscope. Similar in design to Horner's Zoetrope, the illusion of movement produced by the Praxinoscope was viewed on mirrors in the center of the drum rather than through slots on the outside.

He did this by setting up a bank of twelve cameras with trip-wires connected to their shutters, each camera took a picture when the horse tripped its wire. He adapted Horner's Zoetrope to produce his Zoopraxiscope.

Méliès wrote, designed, directed, and acted in hundreds of his own fairy tales and science fiction films, and developed techniques such as stop-motion photography, double and multiple-exposures, time-lapse photography, special effects such as disappearing objects, and dissolves/fades.
In late 1911, he contracted with French film company Pathé to finance and distribute his films, and then went out of business by 1913.
