About this work


"How Films Were Made and Shown looks at the developments in motion picture technology from 1895 to 2015, covering film stocks, cameras, film laboratories and film projection. Whether it was an 8mm home movie, or a 35mm colour sound film, here is mentioned the large amount of inspired invention, scientific research, superb manufacturing, skilful quality control, mechanical engineering, and dedicated and creative presentation, which made possible the illusion and magic of moving pictures for over a century."--From back cover.
