Edweard Muybridge (9 April 1830 – 8 May 1904) was one of the first ever film pioneers of his time. The revelations came about when someone challenged him to get a picture of a horse in mid flight. He did this by setting up cameras in a roe, as the horse ran past, the horse would trip the cameras to flash and take pictures.

Muybridges' work intrigued scientists on how the muscles worked so allot of his later works where of people jumping around and doing acrobats.

The development of chronophotography enhanced, film and photography.
