Slavko Vorkapich (17 Mar 1892 – 20 Oct 1976)

“Serbian-born artist, he settled 1925 in Santa Barbara as a portrait painter and by 1928, inspired by director Rex Ingram, entered Hollywood studios as a ‘montage’ specialist. His name eventually became a noun describing the sequences for which he was famous. In later years, he made Pepsi commercials and lectured on principles of film art.” —David Shepard
