In a few short years, Ince made the transition from the stage, to motion pictures and pioneer of the new industry, to revolutionizing its structure through the creation of the continuity script and segmenting of production. He had demonstrated that film could function simultaneously as a business and art, without relying simply on the vagaries of inspiration. This allowed his product to be at once prolific and of a high standard, and the Ince name brand secured a place of renown in both the industry and with the theatergoing public at large. He established the studio and techniques that would serve him well as he increasingly shifted to a separate position within a larger corporate structure, on his way to becoming an independent producer.
