Motion pictures have been around since the 1890s, when the first moving picture cameras were invented. However, the very first moving picture, The Roundhay Garden Scene, was made in the 1880s. Louis Le Prince, a French inventor, filmed his family prancing around in a circle in a two-second clip in 1888. While this may appear insignificant at the time, it was the innovation that led to the commercialization of cameras and motion pictures.
