To celebrate the 190th birthday of a motion picture pioneer, Eadweard Muybridge, Kingston Museum is collecting lots of people's interesting opinions about the life and work of Muybridge. The first opinion is from Gary Oldman, a world-famous actor and Muybridge fan. Why don't you join him and tell us what you think?
- What do you like about Muybridge?
- Are there any ways Muybridge inspires you?
- Is there anything you don't like about him?
- What do you think Muybridge did well?
- If you could meet Muybridge now, what would you say to him?
Please send us a short video message (between 10-20 seconds), filmed in portrait to [email protected] and we will share a selection weekly on the Kingston Heritage Service Twitter and Instagram pages every #MuybridgeMonday.
