Many technicians and actresses have said in an interview that technology changes the ways movies get made, script writing, editing, acting methods as well as the ways the audience watch them.
Technology has very much an impact on the film industry. More or less every big-budget movie uses animation, VFX, SFX, and 3D animation for more creative and more effective visualization. So, keep reading till the end point of his article, you will learn so many interesting things.
Technology And Film Industry
We may know that technology has simplified our way of lifestyle. Now we are wrapped with technology. If you go back 50 years ago, you may understand how our life-like. You can easily differentiate.
Just like this, now it is very easy to capture a motion picture or videography. In the market, there is so much software that can do video editing, sound editing, etc. You may know that now youngsters take participate in a short film competition. I must say that many of them are doing very well, just like a professional. Here, technology helps them very well.
If you go back 5 decades ago, you can see that time a camera had to have a full unit to operate. If they wanted to get an aerial shot, it required an aircraft-mounted camera that was so heavy to hold.
Do you know the process of editing at that time? That was a very time taking process but people did that because technology does not update or improve. In those days editors had to edit by cutting and pasting film reels physically. You may understand which type of problem they had faced. Yet, this was the process to edit the films in those decades.
We are going to take you through 5 of the most impactful innovations in the film industry. Let’s find out more.
1. Editing Software
As we said in the previous discussion the editor has a tough job of cutting and pasting pieces of film reel to create a perfect whole movie. One mistake in editing could be losing an important scene or film.
You may understand which type of care needs to do this. Apart from this, one editor needs to have the patience to edit a film. And now, the whole process has been changed by technology.
High powered computer setup with updated software in the new century, suddenly it is possible to add animated graphics to the film and the editor can try different edits until one seems perfect for the film. So, technology provides the space where the editor can select options among a number of editing options. It reduces the time of post-production as well as presents the best work with creativity.
Now, multiple cameras are used to shoot one scene. You may be seen in the film that one scene has been captured on a different side. To capture this type of scene, in previous times there was one camera that had to be shifted to different places to take that shot.
But, now multiple cameras have been placed in different places to take the shot. In this way, it is possible to do more in less time. While I am making short films or photo stories, I personally like shooting digitally because it is easy to take multiple shots in less time.
When the script demands to record the scene from a bird’s view, it requires expensive and heavy equipment. Many of the production houses can not bear this expansion. As a result, directors need to sacrifice. But, now Drones make it very easy as well as a handful. Many independent filmmakers are taking the step to make films by using technology.
It has been seen that many films can not be released because post-production work is postponed due to producers not providing more money to complete post-production work.
But, now technology makes it very easy. YouTube and social media (social media marketing) are the markets that help a lot of directors to fulfill their dream project (film).
You may see that on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook spread the trailer of the film, teaser of the film, poster, songs, premier video, promotion video, film announcement video, etc. this will be highly beneficial for a low-budget filmmaker.
This way of marketing and advertising is very lucrative for the audience. In the previous times, the directors needed to distribute the film reel physically to the film festival very carefully but now it is distributed digitally.
The visual effect is one of the most popular technologies that is used in the film industry. You may know many films like the Avenger Series, Game of Thrones, Avatar Series, Fast & Furious series and more and more. There are a lot of movies which are based on VFX.
It makes virtual reality and adds more things. The film industry uses this software in a different way to create the film effectively and virtually.
5. Sound Technology
There are a number of software that can add different sound effects and create crystal clear sound in the film. It can provide the best audience experience in theater as well as headphones.
Sound technology can create realistic sound effects easily, without much expertise. However, technology gives the confidence to new producers, directors, actors, actresses, and technicians to be involved in this industry and make it more creative.
Doesn’t it sound hugely advantageous to have this technology in hand?
Let me know your answer. I would like to know your words.
