The evolution of film condensed into a three-minute short by Scott Ewing

2014-04-13 2

What started out as a labor of love by self-professed movie buff Scott Ewing developed into an obsession soon enough. If you, too, love film, then you’ll definitely enjoy this fanmade short!

After long hours of researching, compiling, and editing, and with “the complete and total” encouragement from his wife Tiffany, Post Production major *Scott Ewing* managed to create this amazing short film that gives us a glimpse of how much cinema has evolved within a century. He selected clips from some of the well-known movies from film’s more than a hundred-year history. In all, he managed to squeeze no less than 100 clips, ranging from works by pioneers Eadweard J. Muybridge and the Lumiere brothers Auguste and Louis, classics “A Trip to the Moon” (1902), “Citizen Kane” (1941), “Casablanca” (1942), “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951), and “2001: A Space Odyssey” (1968), to modern works such as “Kill Bill” (2003), “Gravity” (2013), and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (2014). Movie buffs would surely enjoy watching this short and identifying the movies from which each clip was taken from!

The following is fan made. I do not own the music or clips being used. The music is Edvard Grieg, in the hall of Mountain Kin. The clips are courtesy of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. I am just a movie buff promoting cinema and my love for everything film. – Scott Ewing
