Thomas H. Ince filmed his productions at Inceville in Santa Monica, and the westerns made at Inceville between 1911 and 1912 were structured on the single-shot/scene principle. The films that Reginald Barker directed for Thomas Ince placed considerable emphasis on revealing a character's internal journey through the use of flexible camera placement and compositional framing. Cecil B. DeMille is remembered principally as a director of historical Hollywood costume epics from the 1930s and 1940s. Films had to look good, and the establishment of mood through fine photography and lighting was essential to the visual pleasure that was part of movie-going. But audiences were much more interested in the stories, the characters, and the stars than in the subtleties of framing, editing and scene dissection, and the truth is that those aspects of filmmaking passed wholly unnoticed. They were invisible.
