The Keywords segment for this website aims to provide an entry point to Film and Creative industry-related vocabulary and have them available for public access. Most of the words featured here are words which are too “common” in the industry that they are most of the time being thrown without a thought. Some words have a common use in other context, some are jargons within the industry itself.
This section is inspired by Raymond Williams’ seminal book, Keywords: a Vocabulary of Culture and Society which traces the words featured both etymologically and historically. This section of the website will attempt to do the same: to look into utterances of the word not just in its origins, but also in the context of its historical development.
