Artistic production — including folk theatre — was a component of early civilisations, including Greek, Roman, and Vedic cultures. The enactments were a means for producers of the works to express a social commentary under the guise of entertainment.
Fast-forward to modern times and the notion of visual production including performance arts has evolved into live multimedia stage acts, digital broadcasts and webcasts, motion pictures, short films and documentaries. Like their predecessors of old, many producers today use their mediums to embed messages and shape social attitudes.
