The resulting images are then sequenced and screened as moving footage. The result resembles a mobile gaze moving through a frozen world. The science-fiction film The Matrix (Andy and Larry Wachowski, 1999) made the technique famous, although the directors refer to it more dramatically as Bullet-Time.

If Muybridge had fired all his cameras at once and animated the images via his Zoopraxiscope we might have had a century of time-slice.

While the Chevreul pictures are somewhat theatrical, they do stem from a real interview and are intended to be read as such. There is nothing particularly narrative about the photographs, but their arrangement leads to a sequential reading. The Dreyfus pictures are knowingly artificial and primitively narrative, with a beginning, middle 61 and a symbolic conclusion of sorts.

What facilitated this was not so much technical equipment but montage, a principle of assembly that could be applied to still and moving images.
