Composite Landscapes: Early Film Special Effects

Leslie DeLassus examines early film special effects.

Film historian Leslie DeLassus examines early film special effects innovator Norman O. Dawn and his groundbreaking work, including the pioneering “glass shot.” His productions of one-reel travel films starting in 1907 featuring exotic and scenic elements of remote locations were reworked using glass-shot and matte-shot processes, and appeared in 85 feature-length films for which Dawn produced effects. Learn more about his techniques during the lecture, and visit the Stories to Tellexhibition
