How to use "Virginia reel" in context?
In July of 1925, George M. Reel, of Norfolk, Virginia, created what is now known as the Virginia Reel, a film that has entertained audiences for over eighty years. The film, which consists of 16 shots, was shot in one day with a makeshift camera that Reel himself constructed. The Virginia Reel is a simple, black and white short film that follows a farmhand as he walks down a country road. Although the film is simple, the story it tells is complex.
The film is seen as a harbinger of the emerging medium of motion pictures.
