These images represent my vision as to how i see a moving image. Camera settings are as follows Shutter 30seconds F20 iso100. The subjects in the pictures IE the cars and boats, are moving which is why the lights are the only things you see left from the cars and boats.

1895–1918 German Empire[edit]

The history of cinema in Germany can be traced back to the years shortly after the medium’s birth. On November 1, 1895 Max Skladanowsky and his brother Emil demonstrated their self-invented film projector the Bioscop at the Wintergarten music hall in Berlin. A 15-minute series of eight short films, it was the first screening of films to a paying audience in Europe.[6] This performance pre-dated the first paying public display of the Lumière brothersCinematographe in Paris on December 28 of the same year, a performance that Max Skladanowsky attended and at which he was able to ascertain that the Cinematographe was technically superior to his Bioscop. Other German film pioneers included the Berliners Oskar Messter and Max Gliewe, two of several individuals who independently in 1896 first used a Geneva drive (which allows the film to be advanced intermittently one frame at a time) in a projector, and the cinematographer Guido Seeber.

Legacy[edit]  

Museum of the Moving Image (London)

An exhibition called Moving Pictures ran at the Sheffield Millennium Galleries 14 February – 19 May 2002.[2] The exhibition offered a scaled down version of MOMI using actors and items from the museum collection to tell the history of the moving image. It was planned as the first location of a touring exhibition but was not well received and the tour was cancelled. Later in October 2002 the BFI announced it no longer planned to recreate MOMI.

The MOMI site reopened as BFI Southbank on 14 March 2007, providing a new entrance to the National Film Theatre complex. In addition to the existing three cinemas showcasing the best historical and contemporary film from around the world, the BFI Southbank site has a gallery, a mediatheque of British film and television, and a bookshop within an active programme that includes the annual London Film Festival. Although there was talk thatBradford‘s National Media Museum planned to open a London venue, London still has no publicly funded film museum.
