While almost everyone has been to the movies, most people have never realized the underlying technologies that allow this ubiquitous entertainment medium to function. We’ll take a look at some of the more interesting sciences and answer questions such as “What is Film and How does it Work?” “How is Sound Recorded and Played Back?” “How Are the Sound and Picture Synchronized?” We’ll start in the 1930s and work our way forward in time to the present where movies have migrated away from film and gone electronic. The electronic creation and distribution of motion pictures includes some very advanced technology including cryptography. We’ll go over the current electronic standards and explain how they work. There will also be some short film clips demonstrating some of the salient processes and technologies.
