From silent flicks to virtual reality features, filmmaking has come a long way since its advent in the 1890s. Thanks to technological advancement, progressive ways of thinking, and public demand, we’ve seen films evolve from black-and-white shorts, like Georges Méliès’s A Trip to the Moon, to vivid thrills, like video-game-meets-movie Hardcore Henry. With 3D turning into 4D experiences and VR on the come-up, only time will tell how audiences will watch movies in the coming years. For now, however, let’s appreciate the innovations that have left a mark, the ones that changed the game and have allowed us to experience cinema in new, unforgettable ways.
