What Is Cinema? Is It a Real Thing?
If you are a film buff, then you would have been aware of the term ‘cinema’. It is a common misconception that cinema refers only to the big screens and the Hollywood type movies. In fact, it encompasses every form of motion picture that is produced by a movie producer or a group of film makers. Cinema includes music videos, music dramas, stage plays, advertising films, short films, documentaries, animation, live action films and movies telecasts.
The concept of cinema started with the French revolution which put an end to the rule of the fixed film-camera. With the advent of digital technology, things began to change in the field of movie making. Many new innovations and changes took place in the field of post-production. This eventually led to the present scenario where cinema and post-production are synonymous terms.
The evolution of technology in the field of moviemaking has been mostly contributed to the increasing demand of better and affordable features for the viewers. Therefore, this aspect of post-production has helped the moviemakers in providing good quality content for their target audience. The advancement in this field has further given rise to the notion of pre-fabrication of films, sound tracks, images and other pre-visual components of the movies. This makes the moviemaking industry even more dynamic today.
