Screen stars couldn’t shine without these inventors of motion-picture technology. W. K. L. Dickson built the first motion-picture camera. Auguste and Louis Lumière pioneered a machine that could both photograph and project. Lee de Forest added sound, and Herbert Kalmus’s Technicolor process added full color to motion pictures. Post-production visual effects became possible with Linwood Dunn’s optical printer. Mike Todd created the wide-screen system Todd-AO. Garrett Brown invented the Steadicam, allowing motion-picture cameras to move in new ways.
