People are having meetings an...

The original 1977 version of the saga is nearly impossible to find, so these fans made their own. In 1978, Star Wars won seven Academy Awards. But if you want to watch that original version, the first of George Lucas’s soon to be seven-part saga, you’ll find it difficult. In fact, it’s actually impossible to buy an official copy of Star Wars as it was first released. Lucas doesn’t want you to see that version. Instead, he wants you to watch the continuously updated spec...

use of special effects in cinema.Between 1896 and 1914, he directed some 531 films,
Walt Disney and animation film are synonymous. No other name in animation comes close to the impact the Disney animation empire has made on animation both as an art and an industry. Walt and his brother Roy were two forces to be reckoned with creating and defining animation as an film genre and a business. Their model remains even more relevant today than ever before.
Walt had very early interests in art, he would often sell drawings to neighbors to make extra money. He pursued his art ...
