Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Is this the quicker and easiest route I need to learn something fast and just get the main parts?

Expert:  Cher replied 2 years ago.
Hi again, William.

This would be quicker, but look at the hours. The shorter classes (only a few days) are 6 hours on each day. If you feel you can do this without a problem (it's quite intensive), then it's the best choice for you. However, the other classes that take up to 8 weeks, have shorter class time periods, like 2½ hours each, so you might opt for that schedule. Note you can choose day, evening or weekend classes, as well.

Please rate with positive feedback (smiley face) when you are satisfied with my answer. Your satisfaction is my greatest priority! Thank you!

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Right i think it's better doing it my way intensive but am up for the challenge and am willing to work really hard.

Expert:  Cher replied 2 years ago.
That's great, William!

If you prefer to do it in an intensive way and are up to the challenge, call or email them for a brochure and start choosing your classes. Being a teacher, I recommend that you start with only one class at a time, so you don't overdo it and can devote all your attention to one subject at a time.

Hi again, William and thanks for your patience.

A great majority of the films that have won Academy Awards and other Hollywood awards are found to have been adapted from other sources, including: short stories, novels, remakes of other films, stage plays or musicals, TV shows and various other writings. Many fewer who have won, have been with original screenplays.

To see examples of actual films that have won awards based on their scripts/screenplays, check out the information here, and click on each film to see where the original idea came from:

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

So who was the one that came up with movies in the first place was it the Japanese?

Expert:  Cher replied 1 year ago.
Hi again, William.

Please forgive my delayed response. I greatly appreciate your patience! Laughing

Actually, moving pictures were first invented by Americans and a Frenchman. In 1867 XXXXX XXXXXncoln patented a device called the 'wheel of life' or 'zoopraxiscope' which allowed people to view moving drawings or photographs through a slit in the machine and it resembled what we know today, as animation. Modern motion picture making began with the invention of the motion picture camera. A Frenchman named Louis Lumiere is often credited with inventing the first motion picture camera in the year 1895; however, several other people had made similar inventions around the same time as Lumiere. What Lumiere invented was a portable motion-picture camera, film processing unit and projector called the 'Cinematographe', allowing three functions to be covered in one invention. In 1895, Lumiere and his brother were the first to present projected, moving, photographic, pictures to a paying audience of more than one person.

However, the Lumiere brothers were not the first to project film. In 1891, the (Thomas) Edison company successfully demonstrated the Kinetoscope, which enabled one person at a time to view moving pictures. Later in 1896, Edison showed his improved 'Vitascope' projector and it was the first commercially, successful, projector in the U.S.

I hope this helped.

So why is Japanese Animation movies not popular around the world?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi did you get my last message?

Expert:  Cher replied 1 year ago.
Hi again, William and thanks so much for your patience.

Yes, I received your last message just recently, but I've been experiencing internet connection problems and have just been able to send you an answer now.

I hope all has been well with you! Laughing

Japanese animation movies are popular around the world, but you had asked who first came up with the concept of 'moving pictures (movies)' at first, and that did not include Japanese animation. They're two different subjects.

Do you need more information on Japanese Anime and it's beginnings? If so, I would be glad to research this for you.

If your satisfied with my answers, please remember to rate positively (Good or Excellent) so I am credited by the site for my time and effort. Thanks!

More like actual Computer Animation movies like Toy Story but Japanese style i meant because they don't get awards or do the Japanese get rewards i hardly seen much Japanese Computer Animation movies in my country and/or town and heard much about them?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Now worries you was late my good friend and had problems.

Expert:  Cher replied 1 year ago.

Hi again, William.

Sorry, I was offline when you posted back and I've just returned. Thanks for your patience.

Yes, movies like Toy Story are done by American film studios, and most likely the Japanese animated films are shown mainly in Japan. Sometimes a 'short' or more famous full length movie will get recognition in other countries, if it is entered into film festivals, etc. I'm sure there are Japanese animated movies, but they just might not be as famous and therefore, not shown internationally, only in Japan.
