whatcha watching

Georges Méliès was definitley somewhat of a genius. I was fascinated by the movies he created, I can only imagine what the people felt back in the 19th century. He was the first director, producer, and he even starred in most of his films. I am curious to find out why most of the early story lines were based on satan. I would think that might be considered to be going against the church. People came from all over, just to spend a few seconds watching the ocean ripple.

Melies was a genius; his mixture of magic, theater and filmic techniques created a new way to tell stories that opened up the door for fantasy and science-fiction film.
