100 years of film in about 6 minutes...

I saw this on Gizmodo and could not resist posting a link after watching it.

"If you want to go through the history of cinema, you could easily just check out who won what when. There are awards given out to films every year and the importance we place on those awards allow those films to live on long after they’re first made. But this video compilation of 100 shots in 100 years by Jacob T. Swinney is much cooler: he stitched together a hundred years of film by selecting what he thought the best shot was from each year. It’s a truly stunning way to look at movies." 

 

How many of the 100 could you recognize? I was good for about 64 of the 100.

If you have 6 minutes to spare, give it a go and get the full list of the movies here.
