Georges Méliès was a French director from the silent era famous for his movie “A Trip to the Moon”. It had groundbreaking special effects for the time. It is one of the early masterpieces of cinema – from a time when movies were made by legit artists. It is about a group of astronomers who hitch a ride to the moon inside a bullet fired from a large cannon. I painted the moon to look like Martin Scorsese who directed the movie Hugo. It is a great recent film aimed at kids and about Méliès’ life. Scorcese is easily one of the greatest living directors and a famous film historian.
