    The Weird Adventures of Eadweard Muybridge


    "Pioneer photographer, forefather of cinema, showman, murderer - Eadweard Muybridge was a Victorian enigma. He was born and died in Kingston upon Thames, but did his most famous work in California - freezing time and starting it up again, so that for the first time people could see how a racing horse's legs moved. He went on to animate the movements of naked ladies, wrestlers, athletes, elephants, cockatoos and his own naked body, projecting his images publicly with a machine he invented and astounding audiences worldwide with the first flickerings of cinema. Alan Yentob follows in Muybridge's footsteps as he makes - and often changes - his name, and sets off to kill his young wife's lover. With Andy Serkis as Muybridge."

    Pioneer Photographer, Showman and Murderer"

    Looks good - especially with Andy Serkis

    I thought the most interesting fact was that, for his landscape shots, he had separate sky negatives which he printed in later. So there you are, you anti-Photoshop brigade! He was doing it 150 years ago! Smile

    Yes agreed, a fascinating insight. I hadn't realised he was English.

    I laughed at that too RogBrown. He was way ahead of his time.

    Mind you it helped having such huge financial backing for his battery of 24 automatic release cameras and a colossal purpose built studio to use.

    That's not taking one iota of his achievement away from him - he was a true original thinker and genuine photographic pioneer.

    As a result of this programme - I am very interested in learning more about him and seeing more of his work.
