What is film and movie history
Movie is a term that includes individual motion pictures, the field of film as art form and the movie industry. Movies are produced by capturing images from the world with cameras, or by creating images using animation techniques or special effects.
Movies are cultural artefacts that are created by specific cultures, reflecting those cultures, and it influences them again. Film is regarded as an important art form, a source of popular entertainment, and a powerful method of educating or indoctrination of citizens. The visual elements of the theater give moving images a universal communication power; Some movies have become popular worldwide attractions by making use of duplication or captions that translate the dialogue.
Traditional films consist of a series of individual images called rams. When these images are displayed sequentially, a viewer has the illusion that movement takes place. The viewer can not see the flasher between frames because of an effect known as a persistence of vision, which retains a fraction of a second after the source has been removed. Viewers regard motion as a result of a psychological effect called beta motion.
The origin of the film name is derived from the fact that photographic film (also called film stock) was historically the primary medium for recording and displaying moving images. Many other terms exist for an individual movie, including picture, image, photo play, movie and most common movie. Additional terms for the field generally include the big screen, the silver screen, the theater, and the movies.
