In the early days of cinema “phantom rides” were films shot from the front of moving trains. Until this moment the camera was stationary, but phantom rides kind of invented motion as a new style of filmmaking. Siegfried A. Fruhauf explores the underlying sensation, the “phantom”, in these movements, visually inspired by Ken Jacobs’ found-footage film GEORGETOWN LOOP that is based on a phantom ride scene from 1903.
