The merits of 8mm film in education are pointed out. Three factors necessary for creating a new aptitude are motivation, understanding and knowhow. Informative films show new methods (readiness). Educational films, which are usually short and silent, demonstrate events which cannot be observed directly, e.g., high-speed photography, time-lapse photography, microphotography and special effects. They give insight. Instructional films give knowhow for building a skill, especially when the student can practice what he learns from the film.
