After his film night races (Nightbreed, 1990), based on his story Cabal and is considered by most as a failure, Barker returned to writing and directing for The Lord of illusions (Lord of illusions, 1995).

A short story in his book In the Flesh, called the forbidden, originated the Candyman dock and its two sequels. It has also produced the film gods and monsters (Gods and monsters, 1998), which received critical praise.

Ferdinand Zecca

Ferdinand Zecca (19 de febrero 1864, París – 23 de marzo de 1947, Saint-Mandé) fue un cineasta francés, director, productor, actor y guionista. Principal director de la Pathé-Frères, la productora de cine más importante del mundo antes de la Primera Guerra Mundial.


Ferdinand Zecca nace entre artistas del espectáculo. Su padre es director de un café-concierto y sus hermanos actores. El propio Ferdinand Zecca llegará a ser actor y director del espectáculo. En los orígenes del cine mudo, en 1899, se interesará por las posibilidades del sonido. Realiza para Pathé una primera película sonora, El melómano mudo, acompañando la proyección con el sonido de un gramófono. Luego, para Gaumont, realiza Fechorías de una cabeza de ternera.

Ferdinand Zecca regresa definitivamente a Pathé en 1900. En la Exposición Universal de París, donde la empresa cinematográfica tiene su caseta, conoce a Charles Pathé, que lo contrata como realizador. Acumula los distintos puestos técnicos: actor, guionista, decorador, operador de cámara y director.

Su primer éxito como realizador es Historia de un crimen. La obra contiene el un interesante flash-back. Crime which condemned the death recalls in his last moments. The success of this film is international and gets high visibility for the Pathé.

In 1902, begins the filming of the passion of our Lord Jesus Christ who will not come to the screens until 1905. The triumph of the film is fulminant. Pathé begins an irresistible ascent. Zecca will promote very quickly to the artistic direction of Pathé, overseeing the work of new directors (Gaston Velle, Georges Hatot, Louis Gasnier…). His filmography is difficult, therefore, establish that his role was variable in some films that could be allocated. Zecca rehearses from “reconstituted today” (President McKinley assassination) and films of tricks (impossible bath), two representatives of common genres of the time, until the social drama (the black country, The strike), or fairy tales (Sleeping in the forest, The Puss in boots).

Su filmografía muy variada pide reelabora obras que ya han sido éxitos de otros realizadores. Ferdinand Zecca imita recursos de sus colegas y competidores, especialmente de los realizadores británicos y también de Georges Méliès. It will perform their own version of the Dreyfus affair after the successful Méliès, back to shoot the classic anteojo grandmother method general level following level detail of the British pioneer of cinema g. a. Smith in his film Grandma reading glass, or the Passion of Christ, which was brought to the screen by Léar.

El enfoque cinématográfico de Zecca es menos artístico que comercial, multiplicar las clases e inspirarse, o incluso plagiar, a sus contemporáneos, lo cual tiene por objetivo sobre todo ganar la batalla comercial. Objetivo que alcanzó, puesto que en 1908, Pathé es una multinacional presente en todas partes en el mundo y domina con mano férrea la producción mundial.

In 1914, when the First world war broke out, he was sent to the United States to deal with the American branch of the Pathé company. Again in 1917 to direct the Pathé-Baby Department devoted to home movies.

Ferdinand Zecca renown is because his name is associated with several thousand tape screened on the world in this cinema of pre-war period. His career was closely United to the extraordinary development of Pathé.
