The Cinematogrophy of Dune

"What is cinematography?

Cinematography is the art and craft of making motion pictures by capturing a story visually. Though, technically, cinematography is the art and the science of recording light either electronically onto an image sensor or chemically onto film.

Taken from the Greek for "writing with movement," cinematography is the creation of images you see on screen. A series of shots that form a cohesive narrative. Cinematography composes each shot, considering, where everything in frame demands attention.." from the website: Studiobinder

Music as Artform

"Whether entertaining us on walks to class, filling the room with life at parties, or acting as background noise, music is an art form that we interact with on a daily basis. Music has the ability to intrigue and to transport audiences to different worlds and subject matters. Immersing yourself into rhythm and losing yourself in the beauty of a song are only a few of the infinite possibilities that music not only encompasses, but provides for audiences.." from the article: Music as Art
