1st Telescoped PoV Close-Up in Film
As Seen Through a Telescope (1900) - George Albert Smith
The 1st Telescoped PoV close-up in film: As Seen Through a Telescope by George Albert Smith uses an irised close-up to give the impression of filming through a telescope, thus giving the viewer the point of view of the main character. There is also a voyeuristic element as the lead (and each of us) witnesses a bit of naughty action.
