Segundo Víctor Aurelio Chomón y Ruiz (também Chomont ou Chaumont, francês; 17 de outubro de 1871 – 2 de maio de 1929) foi um pioneiro diretor de cinema, cinematógrafo e roteirista espanhol. Ele produziu muitos curtas-metragem na França enquanto trabalhava para Pathé Frères e foi comparado com Georges Méliès, devido aos seus frequentes truques de câmera e ilusões ópticas. Ele é considerado como o diretor de cinema mudo espanhol mais significativo em um contexto internacional.
