A film, which may be also referred to as, a movie or motion picture, is a story conveyed with moving images.
This is produced by recording photographic images with cameras, or by creating images using animation techniques or visual effects.
Films can be separated into different genres. These include; Action , Adventure, Comedy , Crime, Drama, Horror, Science Fiction, Thrillers, and many more.
Some genres came into place as technology, and time grew. E.g. Science Fiction films are becoming more recognised, and technical, as technology is advancing. One globally known film is “Avatar”. The film breaks all boundaries, and the film itself has won numerous awards.
A drama film is a film genre that depends mostly on in-depth development of realistic characters dealing with emotional themes.
Drama can also merge with other genres called sub-genres. These may include, crime dramas, romance dramas, historical, and comedy genres.
