2021/12/29 Paris Cinematheque, Musee Melies
π 2021-12-29 01:01 in Museums, Paris
This was another idea from my dad, there are so many museums in Paris that seeing them all is a never ending task :)

Musée Méliès was really good given how pioneering and famous this French cinematographer, was, especially as he can be said to be the first real one, and with so much success.

The museum does a great job recounting his life, inventions, and firsts, including how he built his cameras based on the frères Lumière's work who didn't believe their own invention would be worth anything:




There were multiple screens showing some of his early short movies:



even then, some of the movies were hand colorized, frame by frame

He built an entire studio, the first one, in Montreuil:



Really cool visit (and we got lucky to have a guide walk by and give us nice explanations). After we were done, we went to see a different expo on Jean Paul Gaultier, the famous French fashion designer, and how his work got into many movies (including 5th element):
