Georges MélièsDecember 8, 1861 — January 21, 1938
"The camera I was using in the beginning, a rudimentary affair in which the film would tear or would often refuse to move, produced an unexpected effect one day when I was photographing very prosaically the Place de l’Opera.

The trick of substitution, called the trick of stop-action was discovered…"
