THE MAGICIAN OF CINEMA
Georges Méliès (1861 – 1938) was a French illusionist, actor and film director who pioneered many technical and narrative developments, and became one of the most influential filmmakers in the early history of cinema.
Méliès was well known for the use of special effects, popularizing such techniques as stop-motion substitution, multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, hand-painted colour and dissolves. He was also one of the first filmmakers to use storyboards.
