Entertaiment is an activity that provides a break from a routine or stressful schedule and can lighten the mood. It may take the form of a program, movie or sports event on television or other devices, online video platforms and social media, or fun physical activities.
One of the best ways to get into entertainment is by finding a mentor who can show you the ropes and offer advice. Keep in mind that it’s important to learn from your mentors and look for inspiration, but be true to yourself so you can develop your own style.
According to Bates and Ferri, entertaiment is understood objectively, includes communication between text and audience from an external stimulus, offers pleasure, requires an audience and occurs in a passive form. Examples of this are stories like Scheherazade, from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, which inspired Rimsky-Korsakov to compose an orchestral piece, filmmaker Pasolini to make a film adaptation and an innovative video game.
