Themes to Look For in Movies


Throughout the decades, themes have come and gone. From nostalgic fare to escapist films, themes reflect society at that time. Filmmakers have taken risks to create something that will appeal to a wide audience and be a success. But how can one determine which movie will be a hit? Let’s take a closer look. What themes do you like? And what would you like to see in the future? Here are some themes to look for in movies:

First, save your movie. If your program allows, export it in the highest quality. If you make a mistake and accidentally export a lower quality version, you can always create a higher quality copy. Second, make copies of your movie in whatever format you’ll be distributing it to. Check with the online host or streaming service to see which format is best for their platform. Most platforms will support MP4 format. Whether you’ll be uploading your movie to YouTube, Vimeo, or a website will depend on the platform you’re using.

Third, consider how you’ll be using sound and colour. The right sound can make an ordinary movie great, while bad sound can make an otherwise-mediocre movie unwatchable. Regardless of what genre your movie is, sound and lighting should be an essential part of the film. During filming, keep in mind that you should use simple, clear dialogue and music to tell a story. Besides using sound, you can use music, voiceover, and other effects to add to your movie. Lastly, make sure you plan for post-production.
