Short film featuring exquisite antique automata

Here is a film that was originally created as a school program back in the 1980s. The 8 minutes of film show the variety and complexity found in antique automata. Examples include magicians, acrobats, clowns, musicians, and the three masterpieces by Pierre Jaquet-Droz -- the Musician, the Writer, and the Draftsman. Enjoy!
