By definition, a motion picture is a series of pictures, projected onto a screen, creating the illusion of movement.
By the 1800's humans had discovered photography, projection and motion. We just hadn't put them together.
Then, in 1878 a guy called Edward Muybridge changed everything.
He set up 24 cameras linked to tripwires to take photographs of a horse galloping.
He developed and later projected the images onto a screen using his invention, the zoopraxiscope.
The result was 2 seconds of movie history.
Here it is, the first motion picture ever made.
Get your popcorn.
