    Talking medium

    Movies were also regarded as high art by the intellectuals of the day. Many people believed that cinema - or film - would be the defining art form of the new century. Even in its earliest years, film was developing its own style - a style that was distinct from that of the theater. But wat do we mean when we speak of film style? To put it simply, style is the texture of a film's images and sounds. It's the filmmaker's systematic use of the techniques of the medium - for example, staging, lighting, performance, camera framing and focus. Editing and sound also contribute to style. ... ... (Hello, everybody! I promise this is the final question of today I would like to ask at this forum. What is "medium" mean in this context!? It seems that I always have a big problem with this word. Everytime when I meet this word, which just always drives me crazy. There's a lot of definitions for "medium" in the dictionary, and I always can not get its meaning in the context I am learning! !!! Awful word!!!)
