Gulliver’s Travels Among The Lilliputians And The Giants (EOTWS)

End Of The Week Shorts #7.2 extract: Gulliver’s Travels Among The Lilliputians and The Giants (1902)



A good example of Méliès application of double exposure and matte painting, this 1902 adaptation of Gulliver's Travels is an interesting watch. Pre-dating his more complex narrative films, this is only a few scenes used as a showcase of special effects and spectacle. So, with a unique aesthetic that's been long lost, there is still a lasting touch of magic in this short.
