            the Balbu-Cine BOX

     After  self-publishing flip-book Colorant14 are exploring  the world of pre-cinema. Following an initial order for the paper museum, the Pole image Magelis and Poitou Charente Cinema, in France they have created an educational kit called "the Box Balbu-Ciné".

    It makes it possible to explore the B.A.-BA of the cinema. It enables one to experience the first attempts of moving-picture animation. A kind of "curiosity cabinet", the cine-kit takes a hands-on approach to cinema history. Ten classic cinematic devices have been selected to represent the historical development of the movies. 

    The box is now available to reach out to a larger public.
