Segundo de Chomón

Segundo Víctor Aurelio Chomón y Ruiz (also ''Chomont'' or ''Chaumont'', ; 17 October 1871 – 2 May 1929) was a pioneering Spanish film director, cinematographer and screenwriter. He produced many short films in France while working for Pathé Frères and has been compared to Georges Méliès, due to his frequent camera tricks and optical illusions. He is regarded as the most significant Spanish silent film director in an international context. Provided by Wikipedia
