The Cameraman's Revenge


For your entertainment today, one of the earliest stop-motion films made.  The Russian-born Polish filmmaker Wladislaw Starewicz used genuine insects to create something wonderfully unlike anything you've ever seen.

The movie is thirteen minutes long and once you start watching, you'll probably stay to the end.  So if you're at work, you probably should wait for break time before viewing.

Here's a link to the Vault article where I ran across this.

"Mr Beetle should have guessed that the aggressive grasshopper was a movie cameraman." Marvellous!!

It doesn't look a bit Swedish. Frislandic, maybe?
