    Great bit of film. This might be related to the need to find jobs for the servicemen and women returning from duties in WWII, although there was no specific mention of such. Nice.

    Superb! Just goes to show how photography was a subset of professional filmmaking/videography and still is. Also, from a commercial perspective it doesn't appear that professional opportunities were any greater back then than they are now.

    How so? They didn't invent moving pictures (approx 1890) and then realise they could get still images too.

    Ha! ha! The square earth was invented well before the round earth. A hundred years ago Tasmania only had one beer, now it has many. Moving pictures were inevitable and at 24fps solidly outnumber photographs that individually often take days to make. Having said that a photographer only needs one skill set - a filmmaker needs many more. Hey! I'm biased, I've been a filmmaker and photojournalist for National Geographic and many others for over thirty years. I've seen the light. But each to their own without fear or favour.
    PS: Why Twogood promotes filmmaking to photographers (as seen in the film above) is that filmmaking engenders teamwork whilst photography encourages individualism and teamwork will always engender success.
