As the Challenge theme this year for this year's VVC was Memory, it seemed like the perfect time to do a vid I've been considering for quite a while. Alice Guy Blache was one of the first film directors, completing more than 1,000 short films in her career from 1896-1920. She experimented with some of the first scripted stories, with sound and with color. After moving from France to the U.S she had her own film studio in New Jersey, one of the hot spots for film production at the time. Unfortunately most of her works are lost and forgotten.
I considered using music from her era for this vid, but changed my mind when I realized just how many of the surviving works featured movement and dance. download
