The Basics Of Film
A film is essentially a collection of recorded audio and video images that form a story, usually with music, that often make up a movie. The process of recording an actual film has gone significantly down over the past few decades because of technological advances. There are now digital video recorders that can process HD (high definition) video and produce high quality video files. These new digital video recorders are much cheaper than the “arcade” systems that were used to record classic movies many years ago. Many people still enjoy watching old films at the movie theater after they are released. Movie channels on satellite television have also increased the amount of recent releases that have been shown recently.
There are four different types of film: home video, independent film, mainstream film, and independent film made by just the two individuals who are making it. Independent film has become increasingly easier to find and purchase due to the rise in Internet streaming. Independent films that are made for money are not often produced by Hollywood studios, and independent filmmakers have started to gain prominence in the world of film by producing their own movies and distributors are starting to notice the public’s interest in independent films. Mainstream films are generally studio produced movies that are distributed by large companies such as Warner Bros. or Disney.
Science fiction is one of the biggest growing genres in film today. Movies about aliens, spaceships, alternate earth and time travel are becoming more common. One of the most popular genres of film in this vein is science fiction. Science fiction movies are generally set in Earth in the future, with Earthlings as the main characters, and involve time travel, space travel, and aliens as major players. This type of film can be very dark or light and it often deals with themes that are considered futuristic.
