Movies | Film
We watch movies (or films) on our televisions or in the cinema. Movies are visual sequences that tell a story. The first motion picture film was made in 1888, over one hundred years ago. Since then, millions of films have been made around the world and it has become a primary source of entertainment and a billion dollar industry. Hollywood is an area of Los Angeles where the US film industry is based, and is now the most famous film industry in the world. Most people enjoy watching movies, even though some can be very bad.
The first movies were created in the late 1800s with the introduction of motion pictures. The first movies only lasted a couple of seconds. The first movies were created from single shots that later transformed into successive scenes that began around the 20th century. The early movie techniques helped develop films into what they are today.
The difference between a film and a movie is that a film is a term used by individuals that work within the motion picture industry while the term movie is usually used by the general public. Both terms refer to the series of images that give the illusion of motion.
A green screen is the backdrop that a subject is filmed on to later be superimposed with other background footage in a process that is known as chrome keying. Green screens are often used in motion pictures, tv newscasts, video games, as well as music video production.
