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. New film techniques that were introduced in this period include the use of artificial lighting, fire effects and Low-key lighting (i.e. lighting in which most of the frame is dark) for enhanced atmosphere during sinister scenes. 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. The years of the First World War were a complex transitional period for the film industry. D. The desire for wartime propaganda created a renaissance in the film industry in Britain, with realistic war dramas. During the 1980s, audiences began increasingly watching films on their home VCRs.

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. [ 1 ] The film, Ejercicio General del Cuerpo de Bomberos (General Practice of the Fire Department), was only three minutes long and showed the annual public show performed by the Valparaíso Fire Department in the city's Aníbal Plaza. Nothing is known of the film's director, cinematographer or production team, and only 27 seconds of footage remain today, held by the Catholic University of Valparaíso . [ 2 ] The silent era [ edit ] Film production boomed in Chile in the silent era, with 78 films released between 1910 and 1931.

A Short List of Film Terms • Department of English • By David T. Johnson Part of being a good film student is knowing the language of film. Here is a very brief introduction to some of the most common terms you will run across in the classroom. It is by no means comprehensive; nonetheless, it should give you some basic terms to use when speaking and writing about film.

Film A vintage Fox movietone motion picture camera A film, also called a movie or motion picture, is a series of still images which, when shown on a screen, creates the illusion of moving images due to the phi phenomenon. This optical illusion causes the audience to perceive continuous motion between separate objects viewed rapidly in succession.

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.

Horror and terror Figure 21 from Charles Darwin's The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. Caption reads "FIG. 21.—Horror and Agony, copied from a photograph by Dr. Duchenne." The distinction between horror and terror is a standard literary and psychological concept applied especially to Gothic literature and film.[1] Terror is usually described as the feeling of dread and anticipation that precedes the horrifying experience. Film History Before 1920 Innovations Necessary for the Advent of Cinema: Optical toys, shadow shows, 'magic lanterns,' and visual tricks have existed for thousands of years. Many inventors, scientists, manufacturers and scientists have observed the visual phenomenon that a series of individual still pictures set into motion created the illusion of movement - a concept termed persistence of vision. This illusion of motion was first described by British physician Peter Mark Roget in 1824, and was a first step in the development of the cinema. A number of technologies, simple optical toys and mechanical inventions related to motion and vision were developed in the early to late 19th century that were precursors to the birth of the motion picture industry:

Continuity editing Continuity editing is the predominant style of film editing and video editing in the post-production process of filmmaking of narrative films and television programs. The purpose of continuity editing is to smooth over the inherent discontinuity of the editing process and to establish a logical coherence between shots. Common techniques of continuity editing[edit] Continuity editing can be divided into two categories: temporal continuity and spatial continuity. Within each category, specific techniques will work against a sense of continuity. In other words, techniques can cause a passage to be continuous, giving the viewer a concrete physical narration to follow, or discontinuous, causing viewer disorientation, pondering, or even subliminal interpretation or reaction, as in the montage style.

Improving Footage with the Warp Stabilizer in Premiere Pro Got shaky footage? The Warp Stabilizer in Premiere Pro can save the day when dealing with shaky handheld video. In this post we show you how. Editors are constantly faced with fixing production issues during the video editing process, with shaky footage being one of the main troubleshooting points. The History of the Motion Picture The first machine patented in the United States that showed animated pictures or movies was a device called the "wheel of life" or "zoopraxiscope". Patented in 1867 by William Lincoln, moving drawings or photographs were watched through a slit in the zoopraxiscope. However, this was a far cry from motion pictures as we know them today. Modern motion picture making began with the invention of the motion picture camera. The Frenchman Louis Lumiere is often credited as inventing the first motion picture camera in 1895. But in truth, several others had made similar inventions around the same time as Lumiere.
