prompt #3

Can you imagine being an audience member at one of Gaspard Robertson’s “Fantasmagorie” shows in 1797? What do you think your reaction would have been? Can you think of any form of entertainment that would elicit the same emotions today?

It would have been a shocking and surprising, I would imagine myself having goosebumps as the show progresses, I would definitely see myself as part of the audience, since many books would be boring, I feel that this show would promise more than a story, I think something that resembles the emotions of the audience, including me, back then with something from the present, it would be cinema, since just like back then, images are presented to us through a screen, they do not come out and scare but they entertain, the images shown present a higher level and you can really feel that You are in the movie while it tells a story, whether comedy, horror, or romance.
