Eerste Nederlandsch Atelier tot het vervaardigen van Films voor de Bioscoop en Cinematograaf M.H. Laddé & J.W. Merkelbach

short history

A Buiksloot (Amsterdam)-based film studio where the first Dutch filmmaker Machiel Laddé shot a number of short films.
Laddé, who made his living as a photographer, began filming in the summer or autumn of 1896. It is unclear how long Laddé remained active, though it was at least until the first years of the 20th century.
According to Laddé employee J.F.B. Roelofs, by 1906 Laddé had already stopped making films for several years, as it was not a profitable part of his business. The market then was still very small.
