During my stay in Paris, I visited the museum out of curiosity and I can assure you it was definitely worth the full €12.
The evolution of film
Cinema wasn’t always as fancy. It was trial-and-error from the start. With time directors wanted to enrich the viewer’s experience to a higher level. When we look at our TV screens it seems like the most normal thing. Nonetheless, like almost anything else on earth: it started with an experiment.
Movies in 2016 have never looked so unreal and full of action. It took the film industry quite some time to practice and make movies accessible to the public the way it’s done in our modern day. The first movies starting from the 1890s were under a minute long, colorless and silent with very limited cinematic technique. So you can imagine how simple the presentation was. All because of the undeveloped technology back then.
