In 1888 the first film in the world was filmed, “The Roundhay Garden SceneJust 1.66 seconds long, it was filmed by French inventor Louis Le Prince in the garden of his in-laws’ home in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.
It is considered the first film in the history of cinema, making its author the creator of it. He was several years ahead of other illustrious personalities such as Thomas Edison, who introduced the kinetoscope in 1891, or the Lumiere brothers, who exhibited the cinematograph in 1895. The scene consists of 20 frames which, when used with the 12-frame Le Prince projector per second, they delivered 1.66 seconds in length.
Le Prince was never able to present his work in the United States, since he mysteriously disappeared on September 16, 1890, on a train that linked Dijon and Paris, just as he was going to patent his invention in London. There was no sign of him or his luggage, which generated a lot of controversy. In 2003 – 106 years later – a photograph of a drowned man, who could be Le Prince, was found in police files.
