Jasset, Victorin
(Victorin-Hippolyte Jasset / March 30, 1862, Fumay, Ardennes, France - June 22, 1913, Paris, France)
   A pupil of the sculptor Dalou, he was devoted to fan painting and was a costume designer before directing pantomimes and ballets. He also created costumes and drew the poster for a historical show, Vercingé-torix, which opened the Place Clichy's racecourse in 1900. He met future director Georges Hatot, who re­cruited extras for the show. Hatot introduced him to Pathé, where he spent some time before being hired by Gaumont as an assistant director (co-director?), production designer, and costume designer (1906 La Vie du Christ / La Naissance, la Vie et la Mort de Notre-Seigneur / La Passion / USA: The Birth, the Life and Death of Jesus Christ, Alice Guy). He and Hatot joined a new production company, L'Eclipse, in 1906, then he created the first French film serial (Nick Carter) for another society, L'éclair. In 1910, he ended his collabo­ration with Hatot and became an artistic manager for L'éclair. In June 1913, he had to interrupt the shooting of his adaptation of Jules Verne's The Children of Cap­tain Grant to undergo a surgical operation and died of complications thereof at age fifty-one.
