It was filmed by means of the Cinématographe, an all-in-one camera, which also serves as a film projector and developer. As with all early Lumière movies, this film was made in a 35 mm format with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1.[1]


Another single-shot Lumière Brothers film, this time showing the demolition of a wall in the grounds of the factory.
