L’Homme Machine

(Machine Man)

An extremely early animation created by director Étienne-Jules Marey, a pioneer in filming motion pictures.

The most impressive thing about this film is that it’s from 1885, as it seems to be more a test than anything else.

Fun fact!

Marey was shooting movies at 60fps back then, way before it was cool.
