Movies as we knew them have gone through a lot of change over the past few decades. The 90’s movies and 2020’s movies aren’t definitely the same, thanks to the jaw dropping movie effects that astonish us over and over again. The motion picture complexity has gone through ups and downs but the present situation is mostly at the peak of the development phase. Movie makers can now create anything they want, replicate any scene they think the audience would love and put any store in picture reality. If you have watched few latest movies like the Jurassic World or Terminator Genisys, you know how greatly technology has taken over the movie industry.

Computer Generate Imagery
Mostly known as CGI, this computer based technology is changing the whole game. Scenes are shot with specialized cameras and green screens in the background, or blue objects which can later be turned into anything the movie directors want. The worldwide popular television series Game of Thrones heavily relies on CGI, since it will not be possible to actually recreate dragons – the team actually has to build them on computer software. Or, movies like Life of Pie uses green screens to create sea storms within a controlled movie studio, even the tiger was created in computers. Paul Walker from the movie Fast and Furious 7 was mostly CGI-ed as well; did you even feel the tweak throughout the movie? Most probably not; this is how CGI is taking over the whole movie industry.
If this seemingly difficult tech term doesn’t make any sense; then easier said – this is the technology behind 3D movie shoot. In 3D, you trick your brain into believing that you are seeing three dimensional objects on a screen. Basically, two different cameras shoot the same scene just like your two eyes watch something in reality. The 3D glasses you use are barely a sunglass with a blue and another red glass, helping your brain differentiate the movie scene from two different cameras and your brain then blends them into one. That’s a very broad discussion; we wouldn’t get into every detail. Such imaging technologies are being used since 1983, but gains popularity in the 20th century.
In early days, movies were shot on celluloid tapes. Even in present days, many movie makers rely on such cameras. But mostly, the movie making technology has shifted to digital sensor and storage media. Celluloid tapes had their limitations, like hazy video and minimal audio recording in mono channel. Digital filming technologies have overcome such limitations. Movies released in recent times are very high resolution; even consumer level products can plan movies in 4K resolution which is indeed a remarkable evolution. HD broadcast over satellite makes digital filming more desirable for movie makers.
Dolby Surround Audio
Audio effects make a movie complete. Gone are the days when a simple stereo audio track could stun the audience, the present day of movie watchers expect to have their ear drums trembled in theatres and faster heart beats when something terrific happens on the screen. Dolby Digital makes the audio enhancement happen through their innovations, and it’s evolving the movies in greater extent.
These are only a few overlook on how the movie industry is being affected by the latest technology implementations. Very soon movie technologies are going to get beyond our imaginations!
