It tells the stories of selected conflicts that are examples of the changing relationship between the British settlers, the Indians, the professional British army, and the French. It will begin with a glance of the seventeenth-century conflicts between settlers and Indians, particularly the Great Swamp Fight in King Philip's War. These wars were fought by the colonials alone, without men or funding from the mother country. At that time the main problem for the Americans was to invent a strategy that would beat the Indians at their own game of lightning raids against defenseless settlements and of ambushing columns of men marching in European formations. The eighteenth-century wars, in which the Americans played a vital but subordinate role, pitted professional European armies against each other.

With those films, there is not much a message, it is something we see time after time, and people do not leave the theatre saying “Wow! That was a storyline that I’ve never seen in a film before.” American independent film does the opposite of what typical Hollywood movies do; these films will make you think, they may have an unconventional storyline, maybe the film has actors no one has ever heard of before. These films are usually made with a much smaller budget than Hollywood movies and take a short amount of time to film the entire movie. A good example of an American independent film is Lisa Cholodenko’s film The Kids Are All Right. It is a completely unconventional film, that was somewhat shocking to audiences when it first came out in theatres because of its extremely different storyline that most people had not seen in film before.

Both of which use static pictures, that when rotated on the devices, told a story. Digital film pushes cinema away from being live action, which consists of unmodified recordings, into animated images that have been manipulated, in order to get the best shot. In current mainstream cinema there are very few, if any, solely live action movies. The integration of digital cinema into a classically narrative fiction film is a clear indication that there is no longer a distinct difference between the two, they are simply cinema. Narrative cinema is now being pushed into the background, while the cinematic foreground now consists of the attraction; the animation, the explosion, the 3-D movie.
