I want to give thanks to Charlie Jane Anders of io9 for the heads up on this wonderful video showcasing the changes in film visual effects from 1878 to 2014 in just under three minutes!

Jim Casey had this to say about the project:

“A homage to the great moments that changed visual effects:
Took a little while to put together but I think its conveys the evolution of visual effects quite well. I tired to the best of my ability to order these clips chronologically (except for of course the first 3)
I will put together a full list if enough people want it.”
