Must Watch: Awesome Fan-Made Short Chronicles the 'Evolution of Film' in 3 Minutes

Uma Thurman as 'The Bride' in 'Kill Bill'

Fan-made short films are all the rage, and "Evolution of Film, a montage compiled by Scott Ewing, is no exception. The three-minute clip takes a look at the history of cinema since the late 1800s all the way up to 2014.

Beginning with a clip from Eadweard J. Muybridge, the "Pioneer of Motion Photography," "Evolution of Film" takes a look at some of the best pieces of film since the beginning of time. There's Méliès moon, a nice grab from "The Bride of Frankenstein," Marlon Brando crying for "Stella" and a look at some of the movies that will hit theaters later this year. Also, see if you can catch the clip that's out of place.

    On the boring side as far as presentation and editing. Why is this a post?

    Is the Dumb & Dumber clip (2:30) the one that's out of place?

    It's more "The Evolution of American Commercial Cinema", don't you think???

    Agreed, that's on point too.

    Love this. But he really should have titled it "The Evolution of White American Films". A montage featuring all the works mentioned in "The History of Film: An Odyssey" or anything aside from the basic American movies that we all can name instantly would have been much more interesting and truer to film as a world medium. But that aside, lovely fan vid.
