A Short History of Motion Pictures


When moving pictures were first invented, the films were of action, people working, streetcar rolling through town, not much story. Quickly simple stories evolved, then more sophisticated stories. Technical innovations were introduced such as motor driven cameras (24 frames per second) instead of hand crank (various speeds and often fast jerky motion), sound, color, and 3D. Three D was a fad that quickly faded, wide screen was introduced to bring people back to theaters upon the popularity of television, better sound and IMAX also brought people back. Three D even came back and new technology made it possible to produce synthetic 3D in old movies.

Finally, after one hundred years, motion pictures have come full circle and we are back to films with action and no story. What's next?

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started as alight-hearted alternative to my portfolio site, and then grew. This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. Only recently I tried advertising as a way to balance the budget, but it still doesn't cover the costs. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
