Etymology: Cinematography comes from the Greek words (kinema) and - (-graphia). means revolution and was used by mistake instead of the correct greek word (kinesis) wich means movement. Both of these words come from the word (kino) = move, hence the mistake was easy to make.- comes from the verb (write) and therefore indicates a technique for depicting something on a surface (paper, canvas, film, stage etc).Therefore the appropriate word would be cinesiography.
