What is Entertaiment?
Entertaiment is a word you’ll often see abbreviated to entmt. on industry news publications or when space is limited on a flier or note. It’s not a common word for general use, however.
Stories are a great form of entertainment – and often inspire other forms of media, including music, film, and games. For example, Scheherazade (a story in the professional storytelling tradition) inspired orchestral works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, a film by Pasolini, and an innovative video game.
The best entertainment hits on themes that the brain was evolved to deeply react to, like backstabbing and murder. It also stimulates the brain to realease seratonin and dopamine, which give people a good feeling.
