The movie

Moving pictures are actually a series of still pictures that follow each other. When they are played at the correct speed the eye gets the impression of motion. Technology and dramaturgy have developed side by side throughout the history of film.

The Lumière brothers invented the Cinemaphotography projector. With stable images and strong light the film Workers leaving the Lumière factory (1895)could be presented on a white wall. At first films were short, monochrome (black-and-white) and silent. An orchestra played music and made sound effects.

Nowadays you can create movies in the borderland between live action and animation. The 3D movie Avatar from 2010 is the most expensive movie ever made, with a budget of 237 million dollars. It is also the most watched movie of all time and made more than two billion dollars at the box office.
