I need some assistance with these assignment. changes to cinema due to television Thank you in advance for the help! Films tended to be fairly small and operated in an artisanal fashion, meaning just enough to make a short one and convey a message.  .Sophistication came later, with the advent of the new inventions and new technology. Cinema owed its existence to the technological inventions and key developments in motion study and the optics. The medium would soon advance and the potential for the cinema to rival stage-based forms and generate profit attracted numerous entrepreneurs.
The movies were also used to convey messages depicting the behavior or culture of the people. The early films were the stylistic British films that were particularly impressive, incorporating the self-consciously inventive trick comedy of two films from 1900, Williamson’s The Big Swallow and Hepworths How It Feels to Be Run Over. Then there was the enterprising use of cut-ins in Smiths Sick Kitten and transitional devices in Mary Janes Mishap (both from 1903), and the multi-shot Rescued by Rover (1905). The latter proved one of England’s most popular productions.
In the United States, Thomas Edison’s threats of legal reprisals on patent violations made film-making industry stagnant, so that French film-makers were able to invade the market and claim about 75% of the market share. The solution to the patent infringement impasse came in the form of a patent pooling agreement reached in late 1908, and with this, productivity by American firms began to increase significantly.
The company tasked to implement the conditions of the agreement was the Motion Pictures Patents Company (MPPC), and all the major American producers became members and complied with its policies. MPPC made substantial changes in the American film production, and so productivity soared from 1909 onward because MPPC limited the number of imports allowed into the domestic market. MPPC also instituted reforms by providing security to producers. .
In those years the assets of the industry tripled to reach $1billion. Warner Brothers’ assets rose from $5 million in 1925 to $230 million in 1930.
