Composite Landscapes: 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 during gallery hours to see a display of collages Dawn made during his career.
