Videolibers interested in the development of movie, TV, and video
technology may be interested in checking out the following v. cool sites:
>Although the research site is itself somewhat multi-dimensional, I am
>quite proud of the following pages...
>(1) Magic Machines <<
>http://www.cinemedia.net/RMIT/rnaughton/MAGIC_MACHINES.html >>
>which I believe begins to comprehensively document the development of
>the motion picture camera from antiquity to 1900.
>Information is drawn from the web, books, journals etc. including a
>number of late 19th century sources such as the archives of Royal
>Photographic Society. I have even had direct input from living
>relatives of such pioneers as the british photographer and
>cinematographer Birt Acres.
>(2) My biographies collection <<
>http://www.cinemedia.net/RMIT/rnaughton/phd8100.html >> carrying
>information on some 180+ radio, television and cinema pioneers not
>normally mentioned in the same breath as Edison etc.
>(3) My essays collection <<
>http://www.cinemedia.net/RMIT/rnaughton/phd8400.html >> which
>carries some 270+ works including many on radio, television and cinema.
>The research site is served from the 'stable', state government run
>'Cinemedia' ( formerly the State Film Centre of Victoria ) and so is a
>reliable site to point students to. It also has a site specific search
>Trusting you might take the time to have a look at my work especially in
>its now quite developed stage ( I am due for examination in a few months
>and am currently finalising my thesis ) and more importantly, find
>material that might be of more long term interest to you and the
>students at UCB.
>Kind regards
>Russell Naughton
>by day...
>On Line Services Coordinator
>Radio Australia
>by night and every other spare moment for the past four years to the
>annoyance of my family...
