Georges Méliès: Le Mélomane (1903)

no copyright infringement intended

Méliès was a true genius and pioneer in the craft of making films. With his incredible sense of humor and curiosity, the imagination of audiences could explore regions never before envisioned. Being a true student of the technology of the time, he set a standard for special effects which holds up, even in today’s world of computer generated effects. He invented techniques such as the stop trick and was one of the first to use such features as dissolves, time lapse photography, multiple exposures, and color.

(Georges Méliès)
