The Alchemist of Light: A Biography of Georges Méliès

2.0 1
by Osie Turner
 

Georges Méliès was the first sci-fi movie director, not to mention one of the worlds’ first movie directors. He made 552 films between 1896 and 1913--nearly all of which are under twenty minutes in length (many are only one or two minutes long.) His films are some of the most imaginative films ever to be directed, even by today’s standards

Overview

Georges Méliès was the first sci-fi movie director, not to mention one of the worlds’ first movie directors. He made 552 films between 1896 and 1913--nearly all of which are under twenty minutes in length (many are only one or two minutes long.) His films are some of the most imaginative films ever to be directed, even by today’s standards. His innovations in the field of cinematography were groundbreaking and paved the way for future directors. D.W. Griffith said of Méliès, "I owe him everything," and Charlie Chaplin dubbed him "the alchemist of light."
