The Inventor And The Tycoon

A true story of passion, wealth, and sinister ingenuity. Eadweard Muybridge was a calculating murderer and his trial was a national sensation. Despite Muybridge's crime, railroad tycoon Leland Stanford hired the photographer to answer the question of whether the 4 hooves of a running horse ever left the ground all at once. Muybridge's inventive use of 24 photographic frames per second launched an age of visual media in film.
