Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short, summarize this topic like I'm... Ten years old or a College student

Edison Studios was an American film production organization, owned by companies controlled by inventor and entrepreneur, Thomas Edison. The studio made close to 1,200 films, as part of the Edison Manufacturing Company (1894–1911) and then Thomas A. Edison, Inc. (1911–1918), until the studio's closing in 1918. Of that number, 54 were feature length, and the remainder were shorts.[1] All of the company's films have fallen into the public domain because they were released before 1928.
