The Cameraman's Revenge, (Russian: Месть кинематографического оператора) is a 1912 Russian experimental stop-motion animated short film directed and written by Wladyslaw Starewicz.[1][2][3][4] It, along with other works by Starewicz, stands out in the history of stop-motion animation for its use of actual dried insect specimens (beetles, grasshoppers, dragonflies, etc.) as articulated stop-motion puppets portraying all of the characters.


The film is based on the love collision of the Zhukov family (deer beetles), the artist Usachini (beetle-beetle), the grasshopper cameraman and the dancing dancer.[5]
