A movie (from motion picture), also called film, was a series of still or moving images. It was produced by recording images with cameras, or creating images using animation techniques or visual effects. The process of filmmaking, originally conceived in the mid and late 19th Century CE, developed into both an art form and an industry in the following century. The industry lasted well into the 21st Century CE, and was popular on several planets and among collectors of ancient movies in the Post Diaspora era.
The public showing of movies was revived on the planet Grayson in the early 20th Century PD by Steadholder Harrington, her uncle Jacques Chou and members of the Society for Creative Anachronism at a movie festival. (HH12)
