Video filming, editing, and production Why Use Video? Since its invention, film has been used as an effective way to reach and influence the masses as a form of advertising; the most common of these being television commercials. With time it has naturally evolved and adapted to function in the digital age we currently live in. The current surge in household Digital Video Recorders in North America is steadily making TV commercials obsolete by providing the viewer with the option to simply fast-forward through them, thus turning TV advertising budgets into an unnecessary expense.

Remembering more of what you have read can be important for keeping well informed on current events, researching interests on the internet or even reading fiction and non-fiction books. Students in particular are increasingly looking for additional ways to improve their memory and absorb more of what they are reading. This is primarily due to a number of schools and colleges looking to ban laptops and digital devices within lessons and lectures. This is increasing the pressure on students of many age groups to read and comprehend any new information in a fast manner in order to keep up with the lessons. Since many people including children have become increasingly reliant on technological devices, a need for memory improvement skills has been highlighted.

Movies and Shows that Inspired Real Life Crimes "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life" - Oscar Wilde A group of four men were arrested by the Belgian police in 2010 after the discovery of a mutilated dead body.

50 Cool and Creative Products by Fred & Friends Yesterday I was listening to Supersci, and there was a part talking about how humans always move forward – forward to the better world.

6 Filmmaking Tips From Yasujirō Ozu In the 1993 documentary short Talking with Ozu, filmmakers from around the world including Wim Wenders, Claire Denis, and Paul Schrader attest to Yasujirō Ozu’s subtle yet resonant influence on their own filmmaking and their understanding of cinema as an art form.
