Among Edison's Kinetoscopes, there's one short film called Snake Dance. With the invention of Kinetoscope which can shot and project, movement was seen through a snake dance - in fact a flowing dress. In Snake Dance, a swift and fast movement was recorded and represented.
In SNAIL DANCE, juxtaposition of normal and slow movements is made especially to put together both the flow of the character and the flow of the background in the same frame.
