Movies (Films), II


Movies have become a gigantic industry.

A typical feature-length film costs millions of dollars to make and requires the skills of hundreds of workers. Highly technical devices are needed to film and show movies. These include cameras, computers, sound-recording equipment, and projectors.

In fact, motion pictures could not exist without many of the scientific and technical discoveries made since the late 1800’s. For this reason, movies have been called the art form of the 20th century.
