WHY I LOVE FILM?

WHEN MOVING PICTURES WERE FIRST SHOWN MANY YEARS AGO, THE IMPACT IT HAD ON THE WORLD WAS IMMENSE.  

YOU COULD ACTUALLY GET TO RELIVE, ALMOST FIRST HAND, SOMETHING WHICH HAD HAPPENED IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES, AND IF YOU DIDN'T GET TO SEE IT FIRST HAND, YOU COULD WATCH 'PAST HISTORY'…, AT THAT MOMENT…., IN REAL TIME!! 

QUITE REMARKABLE WHEN YOU CONSIDER A SINGLE PHOTOGRAPH WAS THE ONLY HUMAN IMAGE STORE REFERENCE, AND THAT IN ITSELF WAS AMAZING.

AS THE YEARS PROGRESED, IT WAS QUICKLY REALISED THAT WE DIDN'T HAVE TO SIMPLY FILM PEOPLE IN REAL SCENARIOS, BUT THERE WAS A BROADER USE.

 FOR EXAMPLE:-

MAKE UP A STORY, GET PEOPLE TO PRETEND IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, IN A CONVINCING MANNER AND HEY PRESTO YOU HAVE A FICTIONAL  FILM, WITH THE LIMITS BEING YOUR IMAGINATION.

ALL OF A SUDDEN MORE AVENUES ARE OPENING TO THE AMAZING MOVING PICTURES.

SOME EXAMPLES:-

  • BROADCASTING NEWS EVENTS TO THE WORLD
  • COVERING SPORTING EVENTS
  • ALLOWING RECOLLECTION RECORDS OF WHAT PEOPLE MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE SAID,
  • TRAINING PURPOSES
  • ADVERTISING
  • POLITICAL BROADCASTS
  • CHARITY MESSAGES,

AND THE LIST GOES ON.

ALTHOUGH FILMAKING WAS, AND STILL IS A VERY TIME CONSUMING PROCESS, THE MOVING PICTURE WAS A VERY POWERFUL TOOL IN WHATEVER DIRECTION IT WISHED TO TRAVEL.

TECHNOLOGY HAS NOW MOVED ON, BUT THE BASICS AROUND FILM REMAIN THE SAME.  AND THE ACCESSIBILITY IS NOT JUST LIMITED TO THE POWERFUL AND MANIPULATIVE BOSSES OF THE FILM STUDIOS OR BROADCASTING INSTITUTIONS.  IT IS NOW AVAILABLE TO THE MASSES WHO CAN SHARE IN THAT POWER, AND USE IT TO THEIR OWN BENEFIT.

FEATURE FILMS ARE STILL HUGE BUSINESS, AND PEOPLE FLOCK TO SEE THE LATEST BLOCKBUSTER MOVIES, WHERE TECHNOLOGY HAS MADE THESE STORIES WITH PEOPLE AND DINOSAURS ETC, PRETENDING IN A BELIEVABLE MANNER.

IN THE FILM WORLD, 'SPACE' NO LONGER HOLDS ANY MYSTERIES, BECAUSE WE HAVE ALL ALREADY BEEN THERE!!!

MORE THAN THAT, WE ARE NOW LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE TECHNOLOGY WHICH ALLOWS US TO DEMONSTRATE OUR FILMS ON MANY DIFFERING MEDIA PLATFORMS:-

VIDEO, DVD, TV, CD-ROM, COMPUTERS, INTERNET, PHONES ETC.

 AN AMAZING RANGE OF PLATFORMS FOR MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF FILMS.

IT DOESN'T STOP THERE, INTERACTIVITY ALLOWS THE FILM TO BE FLEXIBLE IN ALLOWING THE PERFECT LEARNING AND DEMONSTRATION AIDS FOR ANY GIVEN SUBJECT, MAKING IT A BRILLIANT AND ENTERTAING WAY OF TEACHING OR LEARNING, WITH IMAGINATION AS TO HOW TO MAKE IT INTERACTIVE THE KEY.

I LOVE FILMMAKING AT EVERY LEVEL, BUT ABOVE ALL, I LOVE THE WAY IT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO IMPROVE THEIR LIVES IN THE FORM OF EDUCATION, PROMOTION, AND REFLECTION WHICH SHOWS THE VIEWER THAT SOMETHING COULD, HAS, OR WILL HAPPEN. 

IF A PICTURE TRULY DOES SPEAK A THOUSAND WORDS, THEN FILM SAYS IT ALL.

IF YOU DO WANT TO SAY SOMETHING, THEN TELL ME, AND WE WILL SAY IT TOGETHER…… ON FILM.

HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS

FROM ALL
