Friday, May 5th: Museum of the Moving Image and Group Screening

In the morning the students visited the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, yet another of the five boroughs of New York.

Diana Logreira gave a spectacular tour. The museum is great because it shows the history of the moving image starting with Magic Lanterns, then optical illusion childrens’ toys up to how sound is all redone in a studio these days. They have the original Charlie Chaplin viewing machines, which are just a series of photographs that you wind manually so they act as a flipbook.
