Q1: Films that emphasized the new tech's ability to show movement. Edison was among the top creators of this type of film
Q2: Heavily influenced by non-narrative entertainment like magic shows, fairground attractions, sporting events, vaudeville theater

Q1: Mise-en-scene is how most of the narrative is communicated - through the use of set changes, costume changes, props, blocking
Q2: The main aesthetic limitation is that all shots are long shots and so the story needs to be communicated through larger motions/props, rather than smaller details
Q3: Actions are often ambiguous or confusing. There's a lack of subtlety, bordering on the extreme. The progression of events may seem very slow do to long takes. You can't control the audience's focus.
