No particular reason for this, other than it's cool. I love movies, and have seen a bunch of the films in this. But not all.
I have several of the early Georges Méliès shorts. Some of his effects still hold up well. Some don't. But it's all fun.
Come to think of it, I need to post some of his works. You might not care about it, but I'd enjoy it.
The genius of Georges Méliès was to use movies to create visual effects that could NOT be done in the theater, which turned movies into an attraction rather than just a record of what somebody did on stage.ReplyDelete
