Production of a ninety-minute documentary chronicling the life and work of the nineteenth-century photographer Eadweard Muybridge.

This is a request for an NEH production grant to support an unprecedented multi-platform documentary film and public education project on Eadweard Muybridge, the 19th century photographer who was the first to photograph an object moving faster than the eye can see, fundamentally changing our world. The documentary will reach a broad audience via festivals, theatrical release, domestic and international broadcast and/or streaming, and special public screenings, including at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford, the University of Pennsylvania, the Kingston Museum, and the Yosemite Conservancy, which will present a special event in the park. An interactive website will provide viewers with 4D experiences, ample resources on Muybridge and his technological context, and bonus interviews. An educational symposium at Stanford and an exhibit to mark the 150th anniversary of Muybridge’s Alaska photographs are planned to build excitement and engage key audiences.
