Short Films, by James Williamson, George Albert Smith, United Kingdom, 1898-1905.
The Brighton school is the center of the early history of English cinema, and was born around 1896 with directors and inventors James Williamson, George Albert Smith and Robert William Paul. They were responsible for the invention of the subjective and of particular film editing techniques that for the first time highlight the foreground. Their influence spilled across the globe, including to the United States, where David Wark Griffith developed their innovations in the first narrative film, Birth of a Nation, from 1915.
