The setting of transmedia (2): films

The birth of motion pictures was the direct result of modern science and technology in the nineteenth century.

One part is film, a chemically produced, light-sensitive material that retains images by engraving light into a chlorinated substance. Next is the lens, an optical instrument that is used to adjust the volume and refraction of light, which is attached to a camera, or the mechanical combination of film and lens. Once created, the images are channeled through a projector to be displayed on a screen. The experience of watching a film is closely linked to the body’s visual and physiological processes, meaning that films can be viewed as the definitive result of the period’s chemical, optical, mechanical, and physiological advancements.
