2. THE LUMIEREBROTHERS.(1895) The Lumiere brothers are an iconic figure in the world ofmedia today.They were the first people to have produced a story tellingsequence in one take of moving a image. People today canenjoy and appreciate the different types of genres such as;Entertainment, Documentaries and animation because of them.The Lumiere brothers films are most known for theirsignificance and memorable scenes. Any film director aroundtoday that uses long moving image shots/ dull lighting/ chirpymusic/ black and white visuals have originated and beenrecycled from the Lumiere brothers as they were the firstpeople ever to do so, therefore, any film with similarities to TheLumiere brothers films will always be classed and associatedwith them. 3. THE LUMIERE BROTHERSThis is a screenshot I captured from youtube of the Lumierebrothers films. In this picture we can see that everything had beenstage for the audiences entertainment and benefit. Throughout thevideo each of these scenes last around 1 3 minutes long! Incomparison to films around today I have noticed that shots aremuch more shorter keeping the audience intrigued and to keepthe suspense going, whereas, in this particular film the shots areextremely long and boring. 4.

THE LUMIEREBROTHERSThis screen shot is a shot thatreally caught my eye whenwatching a clip on YouTube.The film the artist is a yearone year old and I personallybelieve is heavily influencedby the Lumiere brother films.This is one of hundreds ofpossible screenshots I couldhave used but this particularone stood out most for me.In comparison to the screenshot of the Lumiere brotherfilm clip I can see tons ofsimilarities between the two,this could beLighting to create and tell the audience whattime is it (day/night)?Audio There is no audio so the audience isrequired full attention to understand whats goingon.Mise en scene- generally everything thats in theshot makes it almost like one of the Lumierebrother films.Director:Michel Hazanavicius 6. D.W. GRIFFITHDavid Llewelyn Wark "D. W."

Griffith is so important as his films have taughteveryone a lot of lessons about real life situation. And howits important not to portray people in the wrong way. 7. D. W. GRIFFITHFrom D. W.Griffiths films particularly the birth of anation the persuasive content of the filmmanipulates the audience into believing what we seeis good and right, almost as if hes trying to changethe audiences opinion on the matter.Some films still do exist like his today but nowadaysmany films show different sides of the story.One film that I personally feel that uses persuasivelanguage is Crash. The film completely changesyour opinion on the characters after watching themfor 90 minutes and you almost feel like you canunderstand the characters a lot more and haverespect for them. 8.
