Moving Pictures And The Audience
Movies are the visual treat of our times and are enjoyed by people from all walks of life. People go to movies for enjoyment, to relax, for socializing, for entertainment, for education, for inspiration, for enlightenment, for shock, for amusement, for inspiration, for art, for religion, for war, for thriller, for comedy, for love, for marriage, for family and even for horror films. What is more, movies have become a major means of transportation. People go to the movies to see a new movie on the big screen, some with amazing special effects and 3D sound effects. Then they go back home to enjoy a fantastic cartoon or a breathtaking action or drama sequence on their television set.
Movies, also known as a motion picture, video film or short film, is a creative work of visual art, usually filmed on a large scale, designed to convey an idea, story, emotions, impressions, experiences, beauty, or setting through the medium of moving pictures. Movies are made by large groups of people to be shown in movie theaters or on regular TV screens. Movies tell stories or narrate events in a non-traditional way, often using dramatic scenes and special effects. The primary objective of the filmmakers is to tell stories that entertain, inform, and stimulate audiences.
Movies are not just a leisure activity. Movies can be educational, social and artistic experiences designed to influence, attract and retain viewers’ attention and appreciation of art forms and messages. Movies are the visual language of the world and express ideas and emotions through a visual experience. Movies may use simple, symbolic images or complex images and stories that evoke an emotional reaction from viewers. Some films make many references to other works of art and even fictional characters.

Movies may use simple, symbolic images or complex images and stories that evoke an emotional reaction from viewers. Movies may tell stories about real people, such as the story of Abraham Lincoln, which was based on the book of the same name; Ben-Hur, which is a fictionalized version of historical events surrounding the Second Jewish-Roman War; and Saving Private Ryan, a military story about a war between the US Army and the Vietnamese People during the Vietnam War. The movie industry also includes horror movies, which tell scary stories with supernatural elements and dark, often blood-filled and evil characters. The vampire series The Twilight Saga and the movie The Cabin In The Blood are examples of this genre.
Movies are made by large groups of people to be shown in movie theaters or on regular TV screens. The plot of the film is mainly driven by the director, who is also the producer and the screenwriter. The major characters in any film are the actors, the actresses, the crew and the movie makeup artists. Moving images and the sounds of the actors and actresses are recorded on film stock. In films, scenes are shot in a studio, on location, on sound stages or in a sound stage.
Movie plots are loosely based on many historical and current events, although they may be based on widely popular events that interest the public. Movies are an entertainment medium that many people enjoy because they use moving pictures to tell stories and to relax. Movies have come a long way from the early silent motion pictures, when black and white pictures were used, to the vivid color films of today. Movies can tell stories that other forms of entertainment cannot, and they often have a lasting effect on the audience.
