Types of Art and Animation
A film, also known as a video, motion picture, or digital film, is a creative work of visual art designed to simulate reality through the use of visually moving pictures. These pictures are usually accompanied by music, and in some rare cases, other sensory stimuli. The term “film” is often used in association with visual art, while “video” is often used in association with the technology that drives the production of films. While there are a variety of different types of film, all films share four attributes: they are produced through an operating system that transmits data directly to a consumer, the ability to capture visual information without having to rely on a film projector or VCR, the ability to store data that can be replayed many times, and the ability to deliver the film to viewers through a physical medium such as a DVD or VCR.
Visual artists create and manipulate the elements of a film through various methods. While films do not use film stock in the same way that photographs and paintings are made using film stock, the principles of film production are often applied to the creation of both visual art and motion pictures. Film stock comes from a process known as “ultraviolet dilution” where chemicals containing ultraviolet radiation (UV) are sprayed onto the film. This causes the colors in the film to appear red, orange, green or blue. This method has a variety of effects on the appearance of the film, including shading and depth of field.
Motion picture and computer animation is the process of creating moving images using computer software. In computer animation, artists use specialized computer programs to create visually moving images or scenes from a computer-generated model. Motion graphics or digital animations can include a number of different things, including character movement, body movements, scenery, background scenery, and interactive objects. In the film industry, motion graphics can refer to both digital film and conventional film stock. The use of motion graphics allows for the production of animated movies and films. Some of the more popular animated motion pictures include Kung Mang, Finding Nemo, Home for the Long Time, Rise of the Silver Surfer and Iron Man 3.
