The Croods - The Invention of the Snapshot

From the animated movie The Croods a family drama set in the Stone Age, a parody of Plato's Cave. After their cave is destroyed, the stone age family must trek through an unfamiliar fantastical world with the help of an inventive boy Grug. Here we see his efforts at inventing snapshot photography.

The Croods tells the story of the world's first family road trip. When their cave is destroyed, the Crood family must embark on a comedy adventure into strange and spectacular territory in search of a new home. As if patriarch Grug (Cage) didn't already have enough to handle, it goes from bad to worse when they encounter an imaginative nomad named Guy (Reynolds.) With Guy's help the Croods conquer their fear of the outside world and discover that they have exactly what it takes to survive - each other.(c)
