Making a Movie – What is Hollywood?
A movie, also known as a video, motion picture, digital movie or video, is an artistic work of visual art utilized to simulate real experiences, emotions, stories, perceptions, beauty, or the environment through the use of moving pictures. In film making, each scene is usually shot in a single location, but may be intercut with still shots, alternate camera angles, special effects, and other forms of photography. Most movies are produced by large studios with the help of a handful of freelance actors and actresses whose lives are busy with everything they need to do the movie. The director usually controls the entire production of the movie from conception to the first screening.
Movies are made for many reasons, but the main reason is entertainment. Movies are not only for entertainment but also to entertain and teach. When making a movie there are several factors that go into its making that must be carefully considered and approached in order to be completed in the time allotted. Money is one of the biggest motivators of Hollywood and producers want to present their audience a movie that will keep their wallets stuffed. Many times movie making companies hire hundreds of people, but even a low budget movie can become a blockbuster if done right.
The concept of making movies is not new to Hollywood, as movies have been around since the late 1890’s, but it was not until the late nineteen eighties that studios began to produce actual movies with real actors and real settings. Since then, Hollywood has grown to encompass a variety of genres from horror films to romantic comedies and science fiction movies. Many people study movie making as a possible career, while others simply enjoy coming across Hollywood’s success with big blockbuster hits.
