Farciot Edouart

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Farciot Edouart, ASC (born Alexander Farciot Edouart; November 5, 1884 – March 17, 1980) was a film special-effects artist and innovator perhaps best known for his work with process photography, also known as rear projection.

Edouart was born in Northern California. His father was a portrait photographer. He began working as a cameraman while still a teenager at the production company of Hobart Bosworth.

By way of mergers and acquisitions, Edouart became an employee of Paramount Pictures, where he began to specialize on optical effects in the mid-1920s.[1] He worked for Paramount until his department was abruptly closed in 1967.[2] He worked on approximately 350 films, and his final film was Rosemary's Baby (1968). Edouart won a total of ten Academy Awards: two competitive (1942 and 1943), seven technical and scientific awards (1938, 1940, two in 1944 and 1948 and two in 1956) and an honorary award for special effects (1939). Leonard Maltin wrote: "The master of process-screen photography is Farciot Edouart."[3]
