Commercial motion pictures were invented at the Edison Laboratory between 1888 and 1893. Perhaps none of the component parts were strictly new, but the ability of Edison and his staff to reorganize them for a specific purpose was an extraordinary cultural achievement. In 1894, Edison was the sole producer of motion pictures in the world. Many Edison films continue to be impressive as the company employed such accomplished early directors as John Collins and Alan Crosland. This film made in January 1894 by W.K.L. Dickson, is also known as "Fred Ott's Sneeze" or simply "The Sneeze" and is one of the earliest film recordings, as well as the oldest surviving copyrighted motion picture.
