Principal Photography
PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY is the phase of film production in which the movie is filmed, with actors on set and cameras rolling, as distinct from pre-production and post-production . Principal photography is nearly always the most expensive phase of film production, due to actor, director, and set crew salaries, as well as the costs of certain shots, props, and on-set special effects. Its start generally marks a point of no return for the financiers, because until it is complete there is unlikely to be enough material filmed to release a final product needed to recoup costs. While it is common for a film to lose its greenlight status during pre-production – for example, because an important cast member drops out – it is extremely uncommon for financing to be withdrawn once principal photography has begun. Feature films usually have insurance in place by the time principal photography begins

Space Opera
SPACE OPERA is a subgenre of science fiction that emphasizes space warfare , melodramatic adventure, interplanetary battles, as well as chivalric romance , and often risk-taking. Set mainly or entirely in outer space , it usually involves conflict between opponents possessing advanced abilities, futuristic weapons , and other sophisticated technology . The term has no relation to music but is instead a play on the terms "soap opera " and "horse opera ", the latter of which was coined during the 1930s to indicate clichéd and formulaic Western movies. Space operas emerged in the 1930s and they continue to be produced in literature, film, comics, and video games. Notable space opera novels include the _Foundation _ series (1942–1999) by Isaac Asimov , the _Lensman _ series (1948-1954) by E. E. Smith and the _Ender\'s Game _ series (1985–present) by Orson Scott Card

Pick-up (filmmaking)
In filmmaking , a PICK-UP is a small, relatively minor shot filmed or recorded after the fact to augment footage already shot. When entire scenes are redone, it is referred to as a RE-SHOOT. Both types of shots usually occur after continuity, logic, or quality issues are identified during the film editing process. In other words, such shots are occurring months after the sets have been struck, the costumes and props have been stored, and all the cast and most of the crew have moved on to other projects. If the issues had been identified during principal photography , the director would simply have asked for another take . Therefore, the director and producer must carefully balance the substantial expense of reuniting key cast and crew members on set against whether pick-ups or re-shoots are absolutely necessary to fix plot holes (or worse) in the final cut

Epic Film
Epic film
Epic film
is a style of filmmaking with large scale, sweeping scope, and spectacle. The usage of the term has shifted over time, sometimes designating a film genre and at other times simply synonymous with big budget filmmaking. Like epics in the classical literary sense it is often focused on a heroic character. An epic's ambitious nature helps to set it apart from other types of film such as the period piece or adventure film. Epic historical films would usually take a historical or a mythic event and add an extravagant setting and lavish costumes, accompanied by an expansive musical score with an ensemble cast, which would make them among the most expensive of films to produce

Space Station
A SPACE STATION, also known as an ORBITAL STATION or an ORBITAL SPACE STATION, is a spacecraft capable of supporting crewmembers, which is designed to remain in space (most commonly as an artificial satellite in low Earth orbit ) for an extended period of time and for other spacecraft to dock. A space station is distinguished from other spacecraft used for human spaceflight by lack of major propulsion or landing systems. Instead, other vehicles transport people and cargo to and from the station. As of September 2016 three space stations are in orbit: the International Space Station , which is permanently manned, China's Tiangong-1 (defunct) and Tiangong-2 (launched 15 September 2016, not permanently manned). Previous stations include the Almaz and Salyut series , Skylab , and most recently _ Mir _

Computer-generated Imagery
COMPUTER-GENERATED IMAGERY (CGI) is the application of computer graphics to create or contribute to images in art , printed media, video games , films, television programs , shorts, commercials, videos, and simulators . The visual scenes may be dynamic or static and may be two-dimensional (2D), though the term "CGI" is most commonly used to refer to 3D computer graphics used for creating scenes or special effects in films and television. Additionally, the use of 2D CGI is often mistakenly referred to as "traditional animation", most often in the case when dedicated animation software such as Adobe Flash or Toon Boom is not used or the CGI is hand drawn using a tablet and mouse. The term 'CGI animation' refers to dynamic CGI rendered as a movie. The term virtual world refers to agent-based, interactive environments. Computer graphics software is used to make computer-generated imagery for films, etc
