NEWS: VES Sponsors International Restoration Project
of the Georges Méliès Films
The Visual Effects Society has announced its sponsorship of The Méliès Collection, an unprecedented project to reconstruct and restore all of the original negatives of 88 short films created by pioneering French auteur Georges Méliès. As part of the Society’s collaboration, the VES will be credited in the opening of new restored elements of THE MAGIC LANTERN, a short where Punchinello and Pierrot build a magic lantern that releases Harlequin, cancan and classic dancers until the gendarmes (French police) step in to deal with the competition. The Collection will provide a new platform from which to share Méliès’ inventive films in their original beauty with audiences worldwide.
“Georges Méliès and his groundbreaking visual effects techniques are vital parts the VFX industry’s shared history – and foundational to the VES,” said Mike Chambers, VES Chair. “Méliès was among the first legends inducted into the VES Hall of Fame and the iconic ‘man in the moon’ image from his masterpiece A Trip to the Moon, was the proud inspiration for our logo. Sponsorship of this important restoration project is another meaningful way to give homage to this VFX giant, on whose shoulders we stand. We are proud to play a role in preserving his rich legacy.”
