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

Eadweard Muybridge was an English photographer important for his pioneering work in photographic studies of motion, and early work in motion-picture projection. In 1878, he was hired by industrialist Leland Stanford to determine whether a galloping horse ever lifts all four feet completely off the ground. Muybridge took 24 photographs of a running horse in rapid succession and projected them on a device he had designed for displaying moving images.
