A film, is a series of still images which, when shown on a screen, creates the illusion of moving images. Film making itself is an art form. The process of making a film is both art and an industry simultaneously. Thus, it has long history and follows some rules or structure. Film language is one of the structures that every film industry especially Hollywood follows either on set or throughout the making process. Let’s have a look at some of the most used terminologies of the industry that begin with letter A:
2) Above the Line expenses: The major expenses committed to before production begins, including story/rights/continuity (writing); salaries for producers, director, and cast; travel and living; and production fees (if the project is bought from an earlier company). Everything else falls under below-the-line expenses.
6) Articulation Artist: A person who takes an artist's designs and builds them in a computer, so that animators can manipulate the figures to tell the story of the film.
