Georges Méliès

Marie-Georges-Jean Méliès (/meɪˈljɛs/; French: …
Marie-Georges-Jean Méliès (/meɪˈljɛs/; French: [meljɛs]; 8 December 1861 – 21 January 1938), was a French illusionist 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 (1902) and The Impossible Voyage (1904), 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.

In his adaptation of the grisly French folk tale, the pioneer director, Georges Méliès, divides the story of Cendrillon (1899)'s writer, Charles Perrault, into ten scenes, placing it amid a plethora of intricate and sophisticated sets. Having been already seven times a widower, the infamous aristocrat, Bluebeard, prepares for the nuptial ceremony, after buying himself a hesitant wife despite his dark reputation. Following a sumptuous wedding banquet, the wealthy nobleman gives his young wife the castle's grand tour--she is welcome to have the run of the manor, apart from that very specific room which is off limits. But with the key to the forbidden door in her hands, the temptation is insufferable. What could possibly lie within?

Cinderella

This George Méliès' extraordinary fairy-tale film adaptation of author Charles Perrault's "Cendrillon", is considered to be the first film to use a dissolve transition in-between scenes. With the use of twenty masterly coloured engravings by Gustave Doré to illustrate the storyline's interchanging scenes, the director portrays Cinderella's well-known story, as the Fairy Godmother works her magic, transforming a poor and ragged girl to a fine aristocratic Lady at the King's Ball. In less than seven minutes, everything is here: from the magnificent magical carriage and the jealous sisters, to the noble Prince Charming and the dainty slipper. Of course, here too, time is of the essence.
