The film takes place at the end of the 19th century. You can recognize the Victorian period and even though the action supposedly takes place in England, the setting can be associated with many other places.

Realization
The making of a short film turned out to be a real challenge for the Platige Image team as they had never had to face anything like that before. About fifty graphic artists took part in this enterprise. For almost a year, they were working on bringing Francis the Inventor’s story to life on the screen. 270 processors at a total power of 675 GHz, i.e. one third computing power of the whole Studio. The film includes 17,250 frames, 40,000 frames in strips. 5,000 trees with 10,000 leaves and 100,000 polygons each were created in the computers’ memory. There are eighteen characters and seventy-four props in "The Kinematograph". The whole film weighs over 1.5 terabytes.

"The Kinematograph" is a huge challenge - twelve minutes of animation is a real nightmare. They usually make thirty-second stuff and here the stakes were raised much higher. Before making such a project they were gaining experience and skills for the last three years.
