… (from the Greek kinéo – move, move) – part of complex words, indicating a link to the cinematography; for example, cinema, cinema, etc.


– the branch of human activity, which consists in the creation of moving images. Sometimes it is also referred to as cinematography (from French cinématographe, obsolete) and cinematography. Cinematography was invented in the XIX century and became extremely popular in the XX century.

The concept of cinema includes cinema art – a kind of modern visual art, whose works are created with the help of moving images, and the film industry (film industry) is a branch of the economy that produces movies, special effects for movies, animation, and demonstrates these works for spectators. Works of motion picture art are created with the help of cinema equipment. The study of cinematography is the science of cinematography.

The influence of cinema on culture and art is undeniable, even assumptions are made about the importance of the influence of cinema on politics and economics. In many countries, the film industry is a significant branch of the economy. The production of motion pictures is concentrated on film studios. Films are shown in cinemas, on television, distributed “on video” in the form of videocassettes and videodiscs.

Cinema is a closed world, you can not get there, the whole truth about it is known only on the sidelines.

This is only a half myth. The cinema is really a closed world. Where the myth, where reality is, is difficult to understand even “viewers from within” – directly to the participants of the movie business. In the cinema there are myths about projects, about artists. And the participants of the process are interested in spreading myths about themselves and about films. Because the viewer is always receptive to the mysterious, and likes to listen to all sorts of fairy tales.

In the movie, it’s not so difficult to get into.

Many artists honestly claim that they got into the cinema accidentally, and this is a fact. For example, Alexei Serebryakov, Jean Gaben, Alain Delon and other great ones. So the stars “coincided”. And it does not matter if they were from acting families.

About the cinema little information.

There is a lot of information, but there is not much truth. Many inventions of journalists and television. But if you compare all the various information that is provided, a picture of the film business appears.

All producers, artists, directors are the richest, independent, advanced people, constitute the elite of society.

This is a political myth. The salary of actors, directors and other workers of cinema in the Soviet era was truly humiliating. She could not even support her family. Therefore, they created this myth, which they still repeat, about the steepness of acting life, so that people act on the acting. Now the actor’s salary is a little more, and it is far from stable. Theater in general is poor. All participants in film projects are very dependent, from producers, directors, to actors – censorship, limited funding, the state.

All those who are filmed are extremely talented people from God, and they made their way to the cinema only because of their talent.

In this statement there are “two sides of the same coin”. Actors are divided into two categories: great and just actors. Some achieved success only because of their natural talent and beauty, others – due to acting, money and connections. Acting is an acquired skill. Someone has by nature, someone has learned, but someone is just plain trivial and they take it off. So it’s someone you need.

Those who make films, easily earn.

So people say far from the movie. Acting profession and life is very intense and dynamic. Shootings of one frame, sometimes, last from several hours to several days.And if shooting in nature! And to work in different conditions – what is it ?! The director is as tense as the actor! And a rooster at night! And endless business trips! Plus, earnings are unstable and roles are rarely offered! So, that about easy money speech does not go, if in general it is a question of the big money, that an exception.

To make a film, you must learn from a great master.

Nothing of the sort! Masterpieces of cinematography are born from the ashes. The prizes are awarded to innovators who have approached the project in a non-standard way. For example, Pavel Lungin for “Taxi Blues” received a prize at the Cannes Film Festival. He said in his interview that he did not study directing at all. And there are many such examples in the cinema.

It is impossible for a domestic actor to get into Western cinema.

This is really a reality. Nobody will shoot a Russian actor or give unambiguous roles. Americans just do not understand Russian culture and acting. We must also take into account the political side.

Russian movie stars are heavily quoted in the West.

Russian actors are not exactly listed. Among the directors are known Mikhalkov and Solovyov, and then more like screenwriters.

The best place for creative work is Russia.

This is far from the case. You need to have a special talent to attract funding to film projects. In Russia there is more than ever a problem with the financing of cinema. The policy of the state with its censorship severely limits the freedom of filmmaking.

If a brilliant script is written, then it will be immediately delivered.

This is not the case. Problems to put the script, there can be a circle – no money, no suitable actors, no equipment for special effects, politics, censorship, intrigue of the film business.
