The video is, essentially, a series of techniques employed to record moving images and display them through electronic media (as opposed to the traditional, cinematic media). While analogical recording was the predominant technique in the seventies and eighties, digital recording has now expanded the use of videos, enhanced the accuracy of its performance, and facilitated other methods. This technique has enabled any individual to become a cinematographer, to depict movement and not merely still images.
The video closely relates to other arts, especially cinema and film, so it is not easy to demarcate a creative field specific to video. Just as films employ video techniques, videos use the artistic techniques that film previously monopolized.
The video plays a significant role in the Syrian revolution. Videos allow for accurate recording and therefore pure depiction in the media, particularly YouTube and satellite television channels.
For the sake of academic leniency, clips filmed on mobile phones without cinema cameras can be compiled as creative video productions.
