What is Film Making?
A film, also known as a video, short film, video, animation or other video, is an artistic work of visual artwork typically intended to convey messages, ideas, emotions, impressions, beauty, or setting through the utilization of moving pictures. The term “film” may refer to any of these works, but the most common types are usually those stemming from the visual arts: motion pictures, still-life images, and photographic images. A film can be created by using a combination of images in a highly-developed digital media, such as computer animation or films with “narrative” elements like storyboards or dialogue. There are many different types of film techniques, including traditional film techniques and new methods like pre-visualization.
Motion pictures are often created by using a combination of still photographs, filmstrip images, and sometimes even live action. A very popular type of film in the 1990s was the image of a skier running across the snow-covered mountains in a remote-controlled machine. Other popular motion picture scenes can include cityscapes or landscapes, actual baseball or football stadiums, and even computer generated images (like in the popular computer game Need for Speed). In more modern terms, a moving image can be any moving image, regardless of format.
While film has been around for centuries, it is only in the last century or so that technology has developed the high-end techniques required to create the visually stunning films of today. Film cameras have improved greatly in recent years, allowing for incredibly smooth movement of moving pictures down both rails of the film speedometer. Special effects have also been developed, ranging from smoke and fog to actual flames or explosions.
