Attention fellow colleagues, I have just seen a breakthrough piece of technology- the cinematographe and it's product. I do not; however, know what actual purposes this machine can hold in the future. But, Edison's shorts were rather astounding. How was he able to make those actions come to life in front of us? I look forward to seeing Edison's future works, those movements are so vivid, full, and captivating. I am sure that there must be some use for this. It truly is magical. Only time will tell.
I wrote about that way for various reasons. First, I keep the ambiguity in the author's position towards the invention, because that parallels Edison's early attitude. Clearly, he was astonished; however, he was also trying to look at it objectively for the article. I chose that film to write about, because it was the very first ones, so the impact and novelty of this invention and shorts were most prominent at this time- leaving me with many different emotions and tones to explore. I think he would react that way because it is just so mind shattering to be able to see these actions- a narrative that engaged, however, would have had an even more noticeable effect. He could have instantly noticed that the cinema is going to be a great form of entertainment; however, Edison's first shorts were presented more as a showcase for the new invention he had created.
