Free documentary: “The Camera That Changed The World”
Watch this highly interesting documentary, “The Camera That Changed The World”, about the invention of the hand-held camera, on Vimeo. This is something that we don’t even think about today, but cameras used to be huge and bulky, impossible to move by a single person, let alone carried on a shoulder.
French and American filmmakers and technicians were working on the first handheld cameras at the same time, 60 years after their respective countrymen Wright and Lumière invented motion pictures.
This is a must-see for any filmmaker interested in the history of filmmaking and its technology.
