Dickson Experimental Sound Film 1894
USA | William K.L. Dickson | Early Cinema
This Experimental Sound Film is the first film in the history of motion pictures to record picture and sound together. It was made by William K.L. Dickson - Edison's assistant. Dickson tried to combine two existing technologies: the phonograph and the kinetoscope. However, he was unable to synchronise the playback and his early experiment was never released to the public.
