A film, also known as a video, digital or moving image, is an artistic work of visual entertainment used to simulate live experiences, usually in the form of moving pictures, to communicate information, stories, impressions, emotions, beauty, or setting. Since the inception of the motion picture, cinema or motion pictures, a film has been the primary means of communication between the artist and the audience. In the past century or so, the motion picture has evolved into the multi-million dollar industry it is today. This has caused tremendous innovations in production, development, technology, and distribution resulting in an incredible variety and quality of the films being produced and released today.
The development of film equipment and techniques has allowed for more creative control over the images and content of the motion pictures. Film is developed by applying different types of chemicals to the moulds that are used in the process of making the film. These chemicals are used in order to induce the growth of physical changes in the moulds that give the final product the shape and shade of the final film. One such chemical used is nitrate, which is used to give the moulds a blue colour. It is these blue colouring effects of the original mould that give the motion pictures the depth, realism and special effects they require in order to succeed in their artistic pursuit of artistic visual entertainment.
With new forms of communication and visual entertainment constantly appearing on the world scene, the film is set to continue to play a pivotal role in the future. As technology continues to improve, advances have been made in the type of films that can be produced and how complex and sophisticated they can be. It is clear that as technology improves, the film industry will no doubt continue to progress with it.
