Edison the invention of the movies by Howard Hawks( Visual )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commercial motion pictures were invented at the Edison Laboratory between 1888 and 1893. Perhaps none of the component parts were strictly new, but the ability of Edison and his staff to reorganize them for a specific purpose was an extraordinary cultural achievement. In 1894, Edison was the sole producer of motion pictures in the world. Many Edison films continue to be impressive as the company employed such accomplished early directors as John Collins and Alan Crosland
Still moving : the film and media collections of the Museum of Modern Art by N.Y.) Museum of Modern Art (New York( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in 4 languages and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founded in 1935, The Museum of Modern Art's Department of Film and Media is home to one of the most important film archives in the world. The collections include over twenty thousand works, from the earliest movies to the most contemporary moving picture art - from a twenty-seven-second film made by W.K.L. Dickson and William Heise in 1893 to video art and media works by artists such as Chris Marker, Pipilotti Rist, and Joan Jonas. Here, for the first time, is a volume that celebrates this remarkable archive, with over five hundred images from individual films, drawn largely from the Museum's collection of still photographs. Special sections detail significant collections, including those of works by Andy Warhol and Joseph Cornell, of films starring Douglas Fairbanks, and of films produced by the Edison and Biograph companies, two of the world's first commercial film producers. An introduction by Steven Higgins, Curator in the Department of Film and Media, outlines the history of the Museum's collections and gives some insight into how The Museum of Modern Art goes about fulfilling its mandate: acquiring, preserving, and exhibiting these extraordinary and singular works, which form such a large part of the history of the moving image."--BOOK JACKET

Figures of silent speech: Silent film dialogue and the American vernacular, 1909--1916 by Torey Liepa( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study begins by describing the tension within which film dialogue emerged, between the institutionalizing and rationalizing film industry and the audiences that made the cinema a popular entertainment. Dialogue was shaped, on one hand, by the standardization of scriptwriting in the film industry, and on the other hand by a popular scriptwriting movement and mobilization of popular forms of speech. The project continues by analyzing the significant effects of global film circulation on intertitle development. As non-'universal' forms, intertitles did not travel well, but rather required translation. Finally, this dissertation analyzes the divergent intertitling styles in the works of D.W. Griffith and Thomas Ince, examining the effects of two influential types of film production on intertitle development
Automatic Seismic Signal Processing( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We examined the feasibility of a post-detector as part of an automated seismic data processing system. The post-detector consisted of two parts. One is a three-component processor to determine the wave propagation, direction and distance of the signal. The other, a coherent beamforming process applied to a regional network of sensors to locate events within targeted seismically active areas of interest. Our results indicated that three-component processing is approximately equivalent to a medium-sized array in obtaining initial locations for automatic event association of detected signal. Significant detection gains were also observed, but not yet evaluated. Coherent beamforming of a regional network of sensors effectively detected and located small events in a targeted seismic region at teleseismic distance from the regional network. These preliminary results indicate that post-detection processing is sufficiently feasible to be tested on regional networks of three-component data, ideally situated at regional or teleseismic distance from targeted areas of interest.
