The Evolution of Movie Terminology
A movie, also referred to as a movie trailer, short film, video short, pre-production, is an animated work of visual artwork designed to simulate real experiences that convey ideas, stories, emotions, beauty, or ambiance through the utilization of moving pictures. The term “moviemaking” derives from the vignettes and stylized, special-effects oriented movies of the 1970s and ’80s. Movie making has come a long way since then. Today, movie making is both an art and a science. This article will discuss some of the latest movie making technologies that are being used to bring life to big and small movie productions.
Modern movie theaters have evolved into full-fledged experience which incorporates many elements such as audio visual equipment, video projector, and a state-of-the art screen. It is not uncommon to find these moviemakers using cutting-edge technology in order to create the ultimate viewing experience that evokes all of the senses: sight, sound, and touch. Many of these elements were first developed decades ago for various motion picture applications, such as television, video games, and even print movies.
Motion graphics is the application of computer based technology to provide moving pictures that tell stories and tell the story behind the images. In the early days, this technology was more limited than it is today. When computer chip manufacturers began developing the idea of adding electronic pictures to popular motion pictures like Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and the Mission Impossible series, the advent of this new technology brought with it new opportunities. The advent of digital cinema brought home the power of this technology to a whole new audience.
Another application that was often used for animated films, is the spoken language. Motion pictures are often used to tell a story or tell a conflict, and the spoken language was often used as a mode of conveying the emotion of the characters in the picture. It is only natural that as technology advanced, the spoken words evolved and became the sole method of conveying emotion through this medium.
This process extended to comic books, as well. As the motion pictures and the spoken language became more similar, the connotation of the word became the same, but only in the minds of the buyers. As a result, they often classified comic books by the word graphic, yet the images themselves would be entirely different. Comic book buyers soon learned to recognize the titles, even when the images were completely different.
Although it may seem unlikely that two words pronounced the same in two different languages, it has happened on a very large scale. With the expansion of motion pictures to a wide array of medium, the connotation of the words “motion picture” and “moving picture” did not have to always be the same. Today, two words pronounced the same in two different languages often have the same meaning.
