First Post: Explain what a movie is to someone who has never seen one (or any moving image, i.e. T.V.).
Imagine you are trying to describe what a film is to someone born in the latter half of the 19th century, BEFORE THE FIRST MOTION PICTURES HAD BEEN INVENTED IN THE 1890’s! Hint: In the nineteenth century, people could relate to paintings, plays, photographs and books. Maybe you could use those art forms or media as reference points (Please do not reference TV or internet – they did not exist!). It is not necessary for you to do research for this discussion to discuss the technology.
Hint: Focus on describing YOUR unique experience of watching a film.
