trick film (genre) (<genres for motion pictures>, <genres in literature and performing arts>, ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Early cinema genre that relied on the technology of the camera or editing techniques such as split-screen, stop-motion, double-exposure, or substitution shots as special effects to create surprising or seemingly magical tranformations onscreen. The genre was begun in the 19th century by Georges Méliès, the French showmen Émile and Vincent Isola, the British magicians David Devant and John Nevil Maskelyne, and the American cinematographers Billy Bitzer and James Stuart Blackton. The term is reserved for a genre of early cinema distinct from contemporary films that may also employ special effects.
