The horse in motion (Eadweard Muybridge) 1878 First Film Ever

Muybridge pioneered motion photography. In 1878, he was hired by industrialist Leland Stanford to determine whether a galloping horse ever lifts all four feet completely off the ground during the gallop. Muybridge took 24 photographs of a horse in a rapid succession and displayed them on a device for displaying moving images of his own design.
