"This was a fascinating dvd set to watch. It takes you back to the beginging of motion picture technology in the 19th century and shows you how visionaries like the Lumiere Brothers managed to create screen visuals more than a 100 years before the advent of computer generated graphics.

It's very comprehensive and everything makes sense."
