As an aspiring film maker and visual effects artist I have to say the most important part about making videos of any kind is knowing your history. Weather it be to understand how things were done in the past, what you admire and hope to achieve, or what you want to avoid, history is key. Since it's been one hundred years roughly since the incorporation of special effects into movies, it's appropriate to pay homage.
Watching this video fills me with pride to know that the augmentation of the reality on screen has such a rich history.
100 years of special effects.
