Germany 1904

Director: Julius Neubronner

English title: Julius Neubronner Performs Magic

Synopsis: Julius Neubronner (1852-1932), a chemist and inventor from Kronberg was one of the first people to film in the Rhine-Main region. He purchased his first camera in 1903, a "Kino" manufactured by Dresdner Foto-Firma. With his camera Neubronner recorded historical events as well as the everyday life of his family. Furthermore, he also shot short sketches performed by himself and his family on a stage set-up in the garden of their home. Occasionally, he also experimented with stop motion effects in these sketches. "Julius Neubronner Performs Magic" shows the amateur filmmaker dressed in a suit and performing a number of magic tricks. He pulls a cardboard tube over a boy: when the tube is raised the boy has disappeared and a girl appears in his stead. Water disappears from a glass bowl and doves take flight.
