Here are two short documentaries on Muybridge. The first, “Muybridge’s Zoopraxiscope: Setting Time in Motion” (4:04) focuses on the Zoopraxiscope and Leyland Stanford.
The second, “The Weird World of Eadweard Muybridge” explores Muybridge in more historical detail.
I have also included a short section of Film Before Film that demonstrates even earlier inventions in pre-cinema history.
