Man Walking Around the Corner (1887)

Man Walking Around the Corner was an early film, shot by Louis Le Prince. According to David Wilkinson’s 2015 documentary The First Film it is not film, but a series of photographs, 16 in all, each taken from one of the lens from Le Prince’s camera. Le Prince went on to develop the one-lens camera and on the 14th October 1888 he finally made the world’s first moving image. The film lasts less than one second, taken on a 16-lens camera.
