The entertainment industry is limbless without special effects today. Special effects are a blend of science and art. Both of these bombard to influence the brain’s sensory parts in perceiving the things happening around us and at the same time also involve in manipulating the sensory system.

Why are special effects used?

In simple words, special effects make everything and anything possible under the sun and so they are used to spice up the movies and give utmost entertainment to the viewers. It is fair enough to say that revolution occurred in the entertainment industry just because of the special effects.

“Think about it and make it happen” – this is the motto behind special effects. Be it aliens or the dinosaurs, we can bring them to life through special effects.

A brief insight on the historical milestones

Can you believe that the history of special effects dates back to 1700s even before a camera was invented? Yes! Magicians used techniques to entertain viewers by performing optical illusions. This was the stepping stone for the origination of special effects.

The first motion picture was staged in 1895 following that came in sound and color which lead to the birth of special effects.

After special effects came into regular usage, a revolution happened in the 20th century with the merging of the idea with computers.

The technology used in computers helped in revolutionizing the scenario of special effects in movies and films.

On the other hand, from the very beginning, film makers have used mirrors and smoke to create tricky effects or illusions to startle viewers. Interestingly, the earliest special effects were in-camera effects which included small movements like jumping.

Magic spill

Today, the impossible is made possible through special effects. Either creating anything or destroying the same is now just a click away.

“Titanic” and “The Matrix” were super hit movies just because they succeeded in startling the audiences with amazing scenes that were created through special effects.

Special effects have been getting better every year with the introduction of new techniques and technology. While the revolution has begun, the best keeps coming always.
