Filmmaking is an art. Since the dawn of cinema over 120 years ago, creative people have been using the medium of film to tell stories to the masses.
But what is often overlooked is that the history of cinema has long been tied to technology.
From the cameras that are used to record the footage to the computers used for special effects to the platforms involved in distribution – from Blu-ray players to Netflix – technology has a hand in almost every aspect of filmmaking.
