Film Industry

  1. 1. Welcome to our project! Created by: I.Spirov & E.Koev Film Industry! Film Lovers Are Sick People! Louise Lumiiere
  2. 2. It all started when…
  3. 3. The Era of The Silent Movies <ul><li>For the first twenty years of motion picture history most silent films were short--only a few minutes in length. At first a novelty, and then increasingly an art form and literary form, silent films reached greater complexity and length in the early 1910's. Few silent films were made in the 1930s, with the exception of Charlie Chaplin, whose character of the Tramp perfected expressive physical moves in many short films in the 1910's and 1920s. Eisenstein's contribution to the development of cinema rested primarily in his theory of editing, or montage, which focused on the collision of opposites in order to create a new entity </li></ul><ul><li>Although the technology for making movies was invented in 1895, a significant realization of the potential for film as art occurs with the appearance of D. W. Griffith's 1915 full-length epic, Birth of a Nation. He also portrayed battle scenes magnificently, with action in one set of shots moving from left to right, while action in another set of shots moves from right to left. Another German director who went to Hollywood is F. W. Murnau. He made his first American film in 1927. </li></ul><ul><li>A last note: the 1922 film Nanook of the North , directed by the American Robert Flaherty, is often credited as the first great achievement of documentary (or non-fiction) film. Flaherty lived among the Eskimos for six months, edited the film back in America, and was lauded for his achievement when the film premiered in New York City. </li></ul>
  4. 4. 1934 - 1946 <ul><li>Stars powered the American Studio System from 1934-1946. Various studios, such as 20th-Century Fox (1935), Paramount Pictures (1912), Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (1924), Columbia Pictures (1920), and Warner Brothers (1923) held long-term contracts both on directors and stars. </li></ul><ul><li>Stars weren't free to seek their own contracts during these years. Often stars would be &quot;loaned&quot; by one studio to another for a particular project with the expectation that such offers would be reimbursed in kind. Stars also worked on more than one picture at a time and often were expected to churn out four or five pictures a year. For instance, Humphrey Bogart starred in 36 films between 1934 and 1942. Casablanca was one of four pictures he completed in 1943. </li></ul><ul><li>A major source of revenue for the studios was their ownership of large theater chains. But in 1949 the studios were forced to divest themselves of these theater empires because of their monopolistic practices. The advent of television in the 1950s, the rise of the director as auteur, and the ability of actors to become &quot;free agents&quot; led to the demise of the old Studio System. </li></ul><ul><li>When the English director Alfred Hitchcock made his first American film in 1940 ( Rebecca ), he joined the pantheon of famous directors under contract by the American studios. Most of the films were little more than popular entertainments. These films have become classics partly because they represent some of the best work done by the following actors: Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, Gary Cooper, Spencer Tracy, Judy Garland, John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, Joan Fontaine, Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Ray Milland. They also are classics because their directors maintained a consistent style and achieved a vision of their genre--Capra of the sentimental comedy, Hitchcock of suspense, John Ford of the American Western, Howard Hawks of the fast-paced comedy of dialogue. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Now we shall introduce some famous cinema names… Robert deniro, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Pfeiffer
  6. 6. Robert De Niro
  7. 7. Julia Roberts <ul><li>Born As: Julie Fiona Roberts Date Of Birth: October 28, 1967 Place of Birth: Smyrna, Georgia (USA) Height: 1,75 m Hair: chatain clair Eyes: brown Family: brother and sister </li></ul>
  8. 8. Julia Roberts <ul><li>Between the late '80s and early '90s, Julia Roberts was among Hollywood's top draws. Though not always taken seriously as a dramatic actress -- indeed she is at her best in romantic comedy or light drama. A born Southerner, Roberts grew up hanging around the theater people who attended her parents' Actors and Writers Workshop in their Atlanta home. She made her film debut playing a supporting role opposite her brother in Blood Red (1989). The melodramatic comedy Steel Magnolias (1989) earned Roberts an Oscar nomination and made her a star. In 1990 she had her greatest success to date starring opposite Richard Gere in the sentimental romantic- comedy Pretty Woman (1990). Roberts’ career began picking up again with Michael Collins and Conspiracy Theory (both 1996). In 1997, Roberts made a triumphant return to romantic comedy in the darkly funny My Best Friend's Wedding, and continued her romantic comedy upswing in 1999 with Notting Hill and Runaway Bride. Both films helped to further restore Roberts to her status as the most bankable woman in Hollywood. This status was further demonstrated with the $20 million - the highest salary ever paid to a screen actress to date. She received to star as the eponymous heroine of Steven Soderbergh's Erin Brockovich in 2000, which won Roberts both the Golden Globes' Best Actress in a drama award and the Best Actress Oscar at the 2000 Academy Awards. </li></ul>

  11. 11. We shall continue… … with some news from the world of film industry…
  12. 12. Harrison Ford, Steven Spielberg & Tom Hanks team up to… <ul><li>23 JANUARY 2002 It’s been over a decade since Indiana Jones last graced the silver screen, but fans of the whip-wielding archaeologist will soon be able to catch up on his activities. A spokesman confirmed yesterday that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are set to make a Jones sequel, in which 59-year-old Harrison Ford will reprise his role as the famed adventurer. Spielberg publicist Marvin Levy says that a story for the tentatively titled Indy 4, which will be released more than 20 years after the first installment, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, has been developed by the blockbuster trio. “It was always about getting the right script, and now we have it,” confirmed Harrison. Steven told Fox News that his wife Kate Capshaw, who was the leading lady in 1984’s Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, will be rejoining the cast. Other aspects of the flick have also been decided, but the Oscar-winning director kept mum on those details.“We have a title, but we’re not ready to announce it,” he said. It remains a mystery whether the film will follow Spielberg’s current project, Catch Me If You Can starring Leo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks . Says representative Marvin: “We don’t know what Steven’s next picture is going to be… They do have a story they like and they have a title, but it’s not been revealed,” says the director’s publicist. One thing Spielberg fans can be sure his next picture won’t be is a film version of Arthur S. Golden’s Memoirs of A Geisha. Though he’d been toying with the idea of directing the adaptation since the novel was published, he now says he will produce instead. Harrison is not believed to be signed for any projects following his upcoming nuclear sub disaster flick, K-19: The Widowmaker. </li></ul>
