Method: Ok everyone, for this assignment you will be researching 5 years each. I will assign
your years after. In those five years, you must find one impactful innovation in the film
industry, something that changed the film industry completely. Can someone give me an
example of an impactful advancement in film? For instance the hair animation technology
developed for Tangled changed the film industry for animated films because it allowed the
animators to create more natural and realistic looking hair in later films, such as Brave, Frozen
and Moana.

Remember, these are innovations that made an impact on the film industry, not on your
personal life.

An image of your innovation, or the movie poster you innovation was first used in, along with
