Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on American Silent Film. It needs to be at least 2000 words. The dialogue was made possible through an advanced technology called the Vita phone. Because of the desire to advance films through synchronized dialogue, the filmmakers were involved in shortsighted decisions and neglected American silent films which led to their disappearance.
The American silent films were the world’s most popular form of entertainment between 1912 and 1929. During the 1920s, the American silent films would trap the audience’s attention and drive it into the world of imagination. Pierce says that “the silent film had an unparalleled capacity to draw an audience inside it, probably because it demanded the audience use its imagination” (21). Indeed, the filmmakers, of the time, gave the silent films the ability to form a seductive atmosphere. These films were made of motion pictures that could tell a story. This made it not only just a movie but also as an experience. In addition, American silent films attracted audiences to attend theatres more than the current films.
Throughout the entire evolution of film production, filmmakers have always had the desire to advance their films. Films have evolved from the invention of the first public screen exhibition to maturity of motion pictures, and finally to talking pictures. The first public screen exhibition was invented by the Lumiere brothers in 1895 in Paris. This was often considered as the birth of film because it was the first time for a motion picture to be projected onto a screen. The program lasted for 20 minutes with 10 short films shown to invited audiences at the Grand Café of Salon Indien in Paris. In addition, the program included a famous comedy called the L’Arrouseur Arose. The Lumiere Brothers also come up with a 50 second short called “Arrivee dun train en gare a La Ciotat.” More filmmakers joined the film production industry to advance on what the Lumiere Brothers had invented. .
