Assistant to Edison who invented the first practical celluloid film for kinetoscope and was the first person to make a film for a pope

His invention of the kinetoscope has its first prototype and was exhibited publicly

The brothers had invented their own device combining camera with printer and projector and called it the cinématographe, which lead to a successful line of cinematographe films.

Pioneered in the UK a system of projecting motion pictures onto a screen, using a self-developed ‘Maltese cross’ system

He pioneered the first double exposure, dissolve, the first split screen with performers acting opposite themselves

As the cylinder spins, the user looks through the slits at the pictures across
Produces the illusion of motion.

An inner circle of mirrors
Placed so that the reflections of the pictures appeared stationary in position as the wheel turned
Someone looking in the mirrors would see a rapid succession of images producing the illusion of motion.

Designed for films to be viewed by one individual at a time
Peephole viewer window at the top of the device
Creating the illusion of movement by conveying a strip of perforated film bearing sequential images over a light source with a high-speed shutter.

Combined a camera for recording the movement, a printer and, when connected to a magic lantern, a projector. About the same size of an ordinary hand held still camera

Expanding on the flick-book principle, the mutoscope contained a sequence of photographs which were arranged around the perimeter of a drum. A simple turn of a handle flipped the cards rapidly, giving the impression of movement.
