Continuity is an attribute of the subject. Conceptually, they are the inventors of 3-D photorealistic computer graphics.

For it to be an image of something, it has to constitute this something as meaning. The relationship between the camera and the subject. First, film is the material basis for media such as photography and motion pictures. And just as no single technology is the immediate precursor to film, the relations hip between film and photography is not simply evolutionary—the advent of cinema did not spell the demise of photography. Do you believe it?


It supposes the subject and it circumscribes his place. As a means for situating film in the broader context of media, and as a means for handling the range of ways that film can be understood as a medium, it will be fruitful to initiate this reference article by making explicit two central definitions of the word.

However, projection works by effacing these differences.

But only on one condition can these differences create this illusion: The central position of iseological spectator within the perspective of the composition is also ideological.

Between the two com- plementary stages of production a mutation of the signifying material takes place neither translation nor transcription, obviously, for the image is not reducible to language precisely where the camera is.
