The Completely Bonafide and Entirely Unfalsified History of the Camera


Here’s a 6-minute short animation by The Royal Ocean Film Society that offers a cynical and tongue-and-cheek account of how the camera came to be.

Creator Andrew Saladino says this film was partially inspired by a 1962 short film of Richard Williams’, titled “A Lecture on Man.”

“People say that the modern world was built in the back of electricity but that was false,” the film says, “for it was the camera that showed men a life different from his own and quietly instructed him that that was actually the thing he’d always wanted all along.”
