Movies, films or motion pictures are a series of still images, when displayed on a large screen, builds the illusion of a moving picture due to a concept known as the phi phenomenon. Cinema of today is an art of broadcasting specific experiences that contain themes, narratives, perceptual experiences, emotions, beauty or environment through technology that helps in displaying recorded moving images, along with other receptive stimuli.
Filmmaking began somewhere around the 1890s, with the introduction of motion picture technology and the institution of production companies and movie theatres. The emergence of the first moving film was introduced in the year 1900, wherein filmmakers began to edit and introduce elements of film narrative in their movies. The first full length multiregional film worst showcased in 1906 by an Australian production known as 'The Story of the Kelly Gang'. This was the first movie that ran for more than an hour and had a reel length of over 4000 feet long.
As the world of movies and films began to boom across the globe, a large number of countries began to get into serious film production such as France, Italy, Sweden, Germany, Russia, Britain and the United States.
The first sound film was introduced in 1914 by Charles Taze Russell, with his production of 'The Photo Drama of Creation'. However, over the years, technology helped in fine-tuning sound films and the initial steps in commercialising sound movies began to take place from 1925 onwards.
While movies and films have been around for more than 100 years now, the introduction of films is relatively new in the world of fine arts. With growing new technologies, the world of filmmaking continues to flourish and strengthen film studios and production houses giving rise to various sub industries within the world of films.
