    1,300 words
    The Evolution of the Film Industry The progress of the film industry was remarkably fast in the first quarter of this century. I have chosen two films namely The Birth of a Nation (1915) and Greed (1924) for comparison and contrast to show how much the industry had evolved within the short span of nine years. These two films are chosen for the short time span between them. This short time span will enable us to evaluate the development of the film industry in terms of the psychological build-up ...

Germany and Japan still had some movie industries but mostly left to domestic. Many nations found film production...

What are the necessary steps that can be taken on behalf of the film industry that can stop this illegal practice from occurring? Once you walk down the city streets of New York, you can easily find vendors selling their bootleg DVD copies of new released movies for ha...

    There were no time guzzling metal detectors at the airports... or the schools. There were no grouchy warning labels on the records and no ratings necessary on the movies. And TV shows were acceptable to the whole family. Those were the sixties or at least part of it. Some of the 52 million sixties' boomers called it the decade of peace, harmony and love mainly for the movement for peace and the "flower power" attitude. Others, a little more pessimistic, called it the decade of dissatisfaction b...

  • Film Marketing In Australia
    384 words
    It seems Australia's film success is not determined by its quality but by its box office returns. The national identity of Australia has become nothing but a market strategy. The future of the Australian film industry seems doubtful, as it cannot command the crowds necessary to sustain high enough box office dollars, or market films sufficiently to attract local audiences. Sustaining a productive innovative film industry seems dependent on the complex process of acquiring film funding, and the p...

    2,505 words
    Australia produced the first feature film, one year before America. Today the film has been ravished by the savagery of age. As a flickering and decrepit piece of celluloid rolls in front of our eyes, the significantly diminished footage concerns the story of the Kelly gang. The Kelly Gang was shot in a time of wonder hope and optimism. Through the decay of the aging film, it depicts the final nail in Ned Kelly's coffin. As the armoured anti-hero fires off those last remaining shots, he is soon ...

    The Australian film industry has been in business for the past one hundred years. The early movies such as Ned Kelly (the first Australian movie) focused more towards the history aspect of things, where as the resent films explore all different types of genres. The Genre is classified to be the back bone of any movie; hence I've decided to delve into "Comedy in Australian movies and how the issue is exposed with the aid of humor." 'The Wog Boy', 'Cracker Jack', 'The Castle', 'Kangaroo Jack' and'...

    Introduction When I first saw this topic I thought I would have an easy job to talk about the development of film in New Zealand. How much could there be on the subject?

I think that when you look at film development in this country you have to split it up into several factors, the history, the filmmakers and their films. The Hi...

    One of the many great exports from America is the film industry. The glitz and glamour of Hollywood which, incidentally has nothing to do with holly or wood and was purely the name of someone's summer home, seems to have a mass worldwide appeal. With the Oscars, the Golden Globes and the Emmys every year simply celebrating film and television, the Americans are obviously very proud of their achievements. However, although the Americans take most of the credit when it comes to the cinema what man...
