Here is my timeline on the history of existing animation, which shows various improvement and development in the stop motion animation industry.
From 1898 A.D. the first stop motion was created which was originally an accident which was made by George Melies when he was filming on a street and his film got stuck which created vehicles jumping from side of the street to the other side on the film. He found this in 1896. From this the first stop motion was created in 1898 which was called ‘The Humpty Dumpty Circus’. From this many other stop motions animation have been made which shows different stop motion animation techniques and styles.
