The Magic Sword: 1901, Robert Paul


A short 3 minute movie made at the birth of the new medium that so intrigued magicians and inventors alike. Robert Paul, who pioneered the invention of film in England (Edison for some reason didn’t patent his invention in Britain!), innovated cameras which allowed reverse cranking of the film stock. This allowed him to create double exposures and some of the special effects seen in the movie above.
