Using Your Elements to Your Advantage

Hi everyone,

Last week we went through a list of budget-friendly cameras that can help you get started with your film making career, but you can’t have a film without actually making the movie. Film making can be a tedious task, especially when competing with a market of innovative creators. The art of storytelling has been around for ages and evolved into many forms. Now the foundation of a good movie is appealing to your audience’s emotions. The question becomes, knowing what your audience wants to see and still stand out from other movies out there. Many filmmakers have succeeded in producing phenomenal movies by taking basic elements and giving them a little tweak here and there.

Here are a few examples;


Elements of Film Making

Character development:

What did you think of the Forrest Gump starred by Tom Hanks? During the making of the movie, Tom Hanks built his character piece by piece in other to become the character. From the speech impediment to all his little quirks, the actor disappears and a whole new person is reborn. The development results from dialogue reconstruct and physical movement. You can build your character with specific sex, age, height, weight, and general appearance. But certain quirks like vocals, nasal passage, defects, and hereditary structure, give you’re your characters more life. Another point to consider would be building upon the character’s mental state. The character’s qualities, moral standards, emotional complexities, beliefs, introversion, and extroversion makes your characters more memorable and relatable.


James Cameron, creator of The Terminator says, “…the beauty of movies is that they don’t have to be logical. They just have to have plausibility.”

Now we know the basics, your plot has to appeal to the minds of the audience. You can make the impossible convincingly possible, that the audience gets sucked in and forget its just a movie. It’s easier to start with a familiar environment. A plot with an organizational structure and plot development can hold your audience’s attention. Now plausibility comes in with the ability to delict the correct sequence, time, and settings in terms of a true event, or present elements in a fashion that is relatable as if it were true, in terms of fictional stories.


Mandy Walker, the cinematographer for Hidden Figures says, “The most important job for cinematographers is to help the director tell a story with the images of the film and camera and lighting and lenses.”

With the growth of technological innovation in the film industry, there is an array of technical equipment that can help you create specific effects and try out creative expressions. You can manipulate between lens and light with a lot of creativity that lets your movie look more attractive to your audience. You don’t really need a lot of equipment to shoot a good movie, especially as a first-time filmmaker. Here your creativity is put to test.

At the end of the day, your movie becomes attractive when you make use of creativity and innovation to create a unique piece. You can pioneer a new idea in a story by using all or some of the elements in a unique way. But once your film has a ‘hook’ that makes it memorable, you are likely to grow a large audience fast.

That’s it for this week, I hope this sheds a little more light on your movie. Next week we are going to talk about something quite different and exciting so don’t be a stranger.



Peace Okei
