(December 8, 1861 — January 21, 1938)
Marie-Georges-Jean Méliès, known as Georges Méliès, was a French illusionist and film director. He is known for developing many early technical and narrative innovations, including special effects such as multiple exposures and time-lapse photography; he was one of the first to use storyboards.
The scene of the spaceship actually hitting the moon from A Trip to the Moon has become one of the most iconic images in science fiction films:
Méliès' life was the inspiration for Brian Selznick's 2007 illustrated novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret; it was made into the movie Hugo, which was a finalist for the 2012 Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form Hugo Award.
