"We're Gonna Eat You, Little Fishies"
19 November 2009 | by ( – See all my reviews

Robert Paul is a largely forgotten name today, but he was a major pioneer of British cinema, and was quick to grasp the commercial potential of cinema in ways that better known pioneers such as William Friese-Greene were not. He was more of a mechanic than a filmmaker making, with Birt Acres, his own camera on which to shoot films in 1895, and also Britain's first projector, the Animatograph, with which to screen them in 1896. Early in the 20th century he had a custom-made studio built in Muswell Hill.

Another film shot by Henry Short for Paul, this is a pretty dull affair. The film focuses on a group of fishermen on a rowing boat moored at a jetty picking their meagre cache of fish from their nets. Lucky for Henry they weren't handing out awards for film-making back in 1897, otherwise he'd have been embarrassed by his lack of success.
