YouthLearn Regardless of what topic you're teaching or the age of the kids you're working with, you'll want to make certain teaching techniques a standard part of your routine. By internalizing these fundamentals until you don't even have to think about them, you'll become a better coach, leader and teacher. Perhaps most important is that you understand and master sound modeling techniques. History of film This article is about the history of film as an artistic medium. For the history of motion-picture technology, see History of film technology.

As films grew longer, specialist writers were employed to simplify more complex stories derived from novels or plays into a form that could be contained on one reel. Genres began to be used as categories; the main division was into comedy and drama, but these categories were further subdivided.

Photo of a man doing what any man would do for 6/7 When I began as a film critic, Jean-Luc Godard was widely thought to have reinvented the cinema with "Breathless" (1960). Now he is almost 80 and has made what is said to be his last film, and he's still at the job, reinventing. If only he had stopped while he was ahead.

The 80 Best Horror Movies Streaming on Shudder (Oct. 2016) When I first ranked some films from the archive of horror streaming service Shudder back in March, I was inclined to think “This service probably beats out Netflix,” in terms of offering a wider scope of both classic and modern horror cinema.

All I can say now is: Wow.

Cinema of Chile History of Chilean cinema [ edit ] Origins [ edit ] The origins of Chilean cinema can be traced back to the start of the twentieth century in the port city of Valparaíso , when the first film ever fully produced in Chile was launched at the Teatro ODEON on 26 May 1902.

The Best Horror Movie Every Year Since 'Psycho' In 1960, Alfred Hitchcock adorned the poster for his latest movie with a very clear message: “It is required that you see Psycho from the very beginning.” You probably know why now: because Janet Leigh, an extremely famous actress who appeared on a different poster for Psycho, was shockingly slashed to death before you even hit the halfway point of the movie. From there, the horror genre was changed forever.

5 Reasons We May Live in a Multiverse The universe we live in may not be the only one out there. In fact, our universe could be just one of an infinite number of universes making up a "multiverse." Though the concept may stretch credulity, there's good physics behind it. And there's not just one way to get to a multiverse — numerous physics theories independently point to such a conclusion. In fact, some experts think the existence of hidden universes is more likely than not.

5 Ways to Help Your Students Become Better Questioners The humble question is an indispensable tool: the spade that helps us dig for truth, or the flashlight that illuminates surrounding darkness. Questioning helps us learn, explore the unknown, and adapt to change. That makes it a most precious “app” today, in a world where everything is changing and so much is unknown. And yet, we don’t seem to value questioning as much as we should. For the most part, in our workplaces as well as our classrooms, it is the answers we reward -- while the questions are barely tolerated. To change that is easier said than done.

Auguste and Louis Lumière The Lumière (pronounced: [lymjɛːʁ]) brothers, Auguste Marie Louis Nicolas [oɡyst maʁi lwi nikɔla] (19 October 1862, Besançon, France – 10 April 1954, Lyon) and Louis Jean [lwi ʒɑ̃] (5 October 1864, Besançon, France – 6 June 1948, Bandol),[1][2] are credited to be first filmmakers in history. They patented the cinematograph, which contrary to Edison's "peepshow" kinetoscope, the former allowed viewing by multiple parties at once, like current cinema. Their first film, Sortie de l'usine Lumière de Lyon, shot in 1894, is considered the first real motion picture in history.[3] Curiously, their surname, "Lumière", is French for "light". History[edit] The LUMIèRE brothers were born in Besançon, France, in 1866 and 1867, and moved to Lyon in 1870, where both attended La Martiniere, the largest technical school in Lyon.[4] Their father, Claude-Antoine Lumière (1840–1911), ran a photographic firm and both brothers worked for him: Louis as a physicist and Auguste as a manager.
