Films are a big part of our lives. Movies have always entertained us, whether in cinemas or at home. When the movies are good, you love to see them over and over again. You even think about the characters even after the movie is over. A lot of talent and creativity goes on to making a great movie. Here are the elements of a great movie.

Good characters

Characters are the most important part of storytelling. They are the life of a film. When you watch a film, you need to like some of the characters in the film. You should feel like you can relate to those characters. The central character of the film is very important. If people don’t like the central character, then the movie won’t do well.

Simple plot

A simple plot is enough to win people’s heart. People don’t like an elaborated plot. A plot can make or break your cinema. You shouldn’t over crowd the film with too many characters.

Theme

Your message should be clear. It is what you want the audience to take away from your movie. You should weave the theme into the story. No audience should leave the room with a bad impression about your film.

Attention to details

Details of the movie are very important. It starts from the point the script is being written. The casting, shots, etc. must be considered in detail. The audience will appreciate these details.

Good ending

The ending of a story is crucial to the success of a movie. Films often get ruined for their bad ending. The ending must be put nicely; it must wrap up the story well. Don’t drag the ending too long. It will lose the tune of the movie.

These are the critical elements needed for making a good film. Film making is an art. You need the right knowledge and experience to make a good film. Practice these elements in making your film and one day you will make some great movies!
