The credit for the first commercial projection of films goes to the famed Lumieres who opened a basement cinema house that hosted several twenty-minute programs a day. These included the famous first comedy of a gardener with a watering hose (The Sprinkler Sprinkled or L'Arrouseur Arrose), the factory worker short, and a sequence of a horse-drawn carriage galloping toward the camera. By 1896, Edison had purchased US inventor Thomas Armat's perfected projection machine called a Vitascope, which was used on April 23, 1896 for the first time.

In 1898, inventor Edwin S. Porter patented an improved projector, which projected brighter and steadier pictures. There was no looking back after this. Steady improvements in films and cameras were paralleled by innovations in projection technology. Several widths of film were used, but the 16mm variety remained among the most popular ones - especially for small audiences and for private viewing of motion pictures.

This Historic 2-DVD set explains how a 16 mm projector works and also furnishes valuable tips on the use and maintenance of these fabulous inventions, which have played a significant role in the fields of education and entertainment.

EDITORIAL REVIEW:

For over a century, motion pictures have continued to be the chief source of entertainment to many the world over. A result of manís continued endeavor to make life better, motion pictures owe their existence to many inventors who burned the midnight oil in the pursuit of perfecting scientific inventions. Among these, the name of Thomas Alva Edison holds a revered position. With over a thousand patents to his credit, Edison must have been one busy scientist.

It was Edisonís incandescent lamp that paved the way for the makings of the movie projector and opened the floodgates for a new form of entertainment that gradually overtook the theatre. This 2-DVD set presents a solid overview of how the motion picture projector works and how it must be handled for best results. A delightful clip also shows you how sound was recorded for dramatized radio broadcasts in the 30s. Itís amazing to learn what a strip of cellophane paper could do in the hands of an expert in a recording studio. Two natural phenomena that are essential to the production of motion pictures - light and sound are also examined and explained here in an admirably entertaining manner. The significance of each of these marvels cannot be overlooked or missed on these clips.

Although the emergence of newer technologies such as videos and DVDs have made the 16 mm projector more or less redundant, its contribution to both entertainment and education cannot be overemphasized. There is about 2 hours of entertainment and education packed into this set - which is a great collection of well-preserved clips from the 30s and 50s - and any history buff or vintage film aficionado would do well to add this historic and edifying set to his or her collection right away.
