Le Voyage Dans La Lune (1902)
In the early years of the 1900s, the film industry was picking up. Films were being churned out at an extremely high rate. They were cheaply made and lasted around a few minutes. Most were depicting real-life situations (“Actualities”) or single scene sketches. This early filmmaking fascinated Georges Méliès since he’d been in the audience at a Lumiere Brothers’ screening. His excitement over this brand new technology saw him create around 500 films in 17 years. His background as an actor and illusionist helped him to invent new ways to bring magic to the screen. In 1902, he set out on his mission to create his most ambitious motion picture yet: Le Voyage Dans la Lune.
