Atlantic Films

Background: Atlantic Films was founded by 18th century blacksmith James O'Connor, Jr. as The Atlantic Blacksmith Shop in 1773. In 1777, he created the first motion picture called The Cliff, which was a 15 second film about a guy falling off a cliff. It became the most popular film in the new United States and had a box office revenue of 2583 pound sterlings (which was alot of money back then). Less than a hundred years later, in 1875, his great grandson, Gavin, decided to stop the blacksmith buisiness and start in the film buisiness, renaming the company The Atlantic Blacksmith Film Company, with Gavin's first film being about the American Civil War. In 1906, the company was taken over by Gavin's son, James IV, after Gavin was killed by a earthquake. James IV made a blockbuster called Earthquake. The movie was made in honor of his father. James IV gave the company to his daughter, Jeanette, in 1947, when James IV got tired of the film buisiness. Jeannete made another blockbuster called Kara's One Big Happy Family, starring her husband, Edward Jonels. She then gave it to her nephew, James VI, in 1983, who then renamed the company to it's current name. It is expected for James VI to give the company to his son, to his son, Blake.
