U2 video for "Lemon" inspired by Muybridge and Marey

Muybridge Photo

Below: short film by Marey

Both of these men helped in the creation of Cinema.

Here is the U2 video for "Lemon".  I read online that this song was inspired by old film that Bono found of his mother in a lemon colored brides maid dress.  The video acknowledges Muybridge and Marey in its style. 

As you can see below, Marey's photos also inspired Marcel Duchamp in his Nude Descending a Staircase.

Muybridge used multiple cameras to campture his images.  This recently developed into the modern "Bullet Time" film making technique seen below.

Just thought you might want to know.
