1824: Peter Roget presented his paper 'The persistence of vision with regard to moving objects' to the British Royal Society.
1831: Dr. Joseph Antoine Plateau (a Belgian scientist) and Dr. Simon Rittrer constructed a machine called a
phenakitstoscope. This machine produced an illusion of movement by allowing a viewer to gaze at a rotating disk containing
small windows; behind the windows was another disk containing a sequence of images. When the disks were rotated at the
correct speed, the synchronization of the windows with the images created an animated effect.
1872: Eadweard Muybridge started his photographic gathering of animals in motion.
1887: Thomas Edison started his research work into motion pictures.
1889: Thomas Edison announced his creation of the kinetoscope which projected a 50ft length of film in approximately 13

`My grandfather past away before he could actually live in his castle. He never slept in it…’
IMPACT ON THE FUTURE
The Lumiere brothers had changed the future of film. They
