Movie Camera
The MOVIE CAMERA, FILM CAMERA or CINE-CAMERA is a type of photographic camera which takes a rapid sequence of photographs on an image sensor or on a film . In contrast to a still camera , which captures a single snapshot at a time, the movie camera takes a series of images; each image constitutes a "frame". This is accomplished through an intermittent mechanism . The frames are later played back in a movie projector at a specific speed, called the frame rate (number of frames per second). While viewing at a particular frame rate, a person's eyes and brain merge the separate pictures together to create the illusion of motion. Since the 2010s, film-based movie cameras have been largely replaced by digital movie cameras

Location scouts often negotiate legal access to filming locations

Wings Of Hope (documentary)
A WING is a type of fin that produces lift , while moving through air or some other fluid. As such, wings have streamlined cross-sections that are subject to aerodynamic forces and act as an airfoils . A wing's aerodynamic efficiency is expressed as its lift-to-drag ratio . The lift a wing generates at a given speed and angle of attack can be one to two orders of magnitude greater than the total drag on the wing . A high lift-to-drag ratio requires a significantly smaller thrust to propel the wings through the air at sufficient lift. Lifting structures used in water, include various foils , including hydrofoils . Hydrodynamics is the governing science, rather than aerodynamics. Applications of underwater foils occur in hydroplanes , sailboats and submarines
