If you've been wondering what the differences are between video and film, rest assured you are not the only one!
As a rule, short recordings are referred to as video, and in the case of films, one usually speaks of longer videos, such as feature films, cartoons, documentary!
The videos are rather short recordings, or known as video clips that do not cover a complete topic, they can be seconds or minutes long!
The biggest difference is the price of film and video.
While videos are usually viewed as inexpensive, or at least cheaper than movies, movies are more expensive and require a longer production process. The film needs to be developed whereas the video used to be recorded on, for example, magnetic tape.
Finally on film versus video!
The film usually has a storyline or essay, and videos can be mere recordings that do not deal with any particular subject!
