1st Animated Film Coppyrighted April 6, 1906
Humorous Phases of Funny Faces by J. Stuart Blackton Was the first animated film copyrighted in the United States, it was three minutes long... Despite the rough use of simple animated chalkboard drawings, the film is a revolutionary achievement. The movie starts off with hand drawings on a chalkboard. However, the drawing starts to move on its own. The film is simple and fun to watch. The movie starts off with a man in a top hat that blows a cigar smoke in a woman‘s face, and a clown dances. I can only imagine the look on people faces as they watch pictures come to life for the first time.You can view the film below enjoy.
