The greatest gift that human race is blessed with is the ability to recognize the voices and the visuals and perceive the message that is a galactic notion expressed in the audio-visual format. There is almost no end to the number of people and organizations that are involved in the business of creating and showcasing different forms of entertainment to the audiences worldwide. One of the studios that has created a benchmark of success and excellence for other studios to follow is the Warner Brothers Studio, which has been into existence for more than a century now.
The studio is named after Harry, Albert, Sam, and Jack (or Jacob), four brothers whoWarner Brothers Studio in Burbank, California were the founders. The business of the studio initially was to project films rather than producing or distributing. Though the studio and its subsidiaries now operate from Burbank, California, the first theater opened by the Warner Brothers Studio was located in New Castle, Pennsylvania, in 1903.
The studio started distributing films in 1904 through a new company called Duquesne Amusement and Supply Company in Pittsburgh. As the world was witnessing the first world war, Warner Brothers had ventured into film production, and soon the sun was shining at the Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, where the first studio was opened by Warner Bros. The year was 1918 and the world war had ended, and a new era for Warner Brothers had begun, as they had released the first feature film and later on went on to establish the Warner Brothers, Inc. in 1923.
Warner Brothers introduced the concept of sync sound. In the later period, the studio became a trend-setter not just for the studios, but also for the people who watched the films produced by the studio. People changed, trends changed, actors came and left, cult films were made, and television was revamped as time passed.
Warner Brothers Studio is the place where thoughts and dreams are converted into reality with the help of cutting edge technology and combined efforts of the production staff.
