To make a movie, you need a camera and a script. You will need to memorize the script and the director will tell you what to do. A cameraman will take the motion pictures of the actors. Then you will have to edit the footage to make it look the way you want it to. Then you will have to add sounds and effects. Finally, you will need to share your movie with others. This process can take a few weeks or even months.
During this period, the world was experiencing World War II, tearing families apart and making people worry that the Axis powers would win. Regardless of the outcome of the war, society and the labor force needed to adjust to the difficult times. Hence, movies became more realistic. Moreover, the themes of movies evolved. Themes of a movie changed over the years, expressing different attitudes, emotions, and social conditions. In this way, they could reflect the time and place in which they were made.
Depending on the genre, the movie can be divided into two types: comedy movies and dramas. Comedy horror movies are those which combine comedy and horror themes. Black comedy is often used in these movies. While science fiction movies are mostly about outer space and future technologies, fantasy movies are about magical things that are real. Similarly, thrillers deal with real people, events, and themes. For example, a movie about divorce involves a couple proving who is best for the child.
In the early 1960s, the role of women in movies began to change. Movies depicted women as controlling and independent, no longer the victims of violence. No longer were women defenseless and needing the support of a man to survive. As a result, there were a number of changes in the American public. The period of change during this time is often referred to as “cinephilia.”
The 1930s movie industry thrived despite the Depression. A classic film theory, How to Read a Film (1936), said that “the cinematic medium has its own language”. James Monaco called it “another language.” Ingmar Bergman stated that Andrei Tarkovsky invented a new language in his movie, a “new world” of motion. His movie featured a sequence in which a speaking actor is shown in his left and right profile simultaneously. Afterwards, the audience understands what he is saying and why.
In the mid-1960s, American society changed dramatically. Many changes influenced the content of movies. Some movies were made for educational purposes. Many of them are recorded lectures or are based on a classic novel. Others were used for political purposes, including propaganda during World War II. In Nazi Germany, propaganda films were made by Leni Riefenstahl and Sergei Eisenstein. Meanwhile, many political protest films were produced by Andrzej Wajda and Andrei Tarkovsky.
In addition to movies, moviegoers also enjoy experiencing different kinds of local film culture. Some people even prefer smaller, quieter, art house films. While Hollywood can’t envision people sitting in traffic for a movie, many people prefer to experience a film on 35mm or another format. Some cities even require the wearer to present proof of vaccination. The diversity in movie-going is vast. But while the experience in each locale is unique, some localities have specific regulations.
