by One Hundred Years of Cinema

In this video, One Hundred Years of Cinema looks back at Willis H O’Brian’s The Ghost of Slumber Mountain (1918), the first film to mix stop motion with live action footage, laying the groundwork for techniques that would later allow him to create such amazing images as King Kong Climbing the Empire State Building.
