Georges Méliès

Local nameGeorges Méliès
Location20th arrondissement of Paris, France

Marie-Georges-Jean Méliès was a French illusionist, actor, and film director who led many technical and narrative developments in the earliest days of cinema.

Méliès was well known for the use of special effects, popularizing such techniques as substitution splices, multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, dissolves, and hand-painted colour. He was also one of the first filmmakers to use storyboards. His films include A Trip to the Moon and The Impossible Voyage, both involving strange, surreal journeys somewhat in the style of Jules Verne, and are considered among the most important early science fiction films, though their approach is closer to fantasy.
