1. Invention of films-1890s
Motion images date all the way back to when the first moving image cameras were invented in the 1890s. Movies were very dull prior to the progress of the Hollywood scene. They started out short and included just a single scene, which lasted about a minute. Usually, they were quiet.
2. Bands sometimes accompanied earliest short films
Although random, everyday scenes scrolled by silently on a computer, what fun would it be sitting in a theater? Embarrassing. To compensate for the lack of sound in a movie, while the movie was playing, often a band would play live music.
3. The panorama shot was born in 1987
1987 is the year that panning cameras were first used in film making, meaning that the pan shot was then invented, also known as the panorama shot. Cameras were stationary before, so you had to move the whole camera and tripod in order to get some sort of movement. This was a tremendous breakthrough in film making.
4. Early cameras were filmed at 16 frames per second (fps)
A 16 frames per second speed is pretty sluggish by today's standards. Modern 35mm cameras film at 25 FPS, for perspective. Some modern video games are played at 250 FPS if you want your mind blown away.
5. The first movie theaters opened in 1907
Most movies were shown in traditional theaters or at carnivals prior to 1907. With the invention of movie theaters, the films themselves became the main attraction.
