What makes a film famous

When you walk out of the cinema after watching a movie, you can either be super excited about the movie, talking about it with your friends and planning on watching it again at home or you can be wondering why you wasted money and time on the movie you just saw.  There is a very fine line between these two sentiments and that is the line that differentiates between whether a movie is going to be famous or not.  What are the factors that determine the success of a movie? If you have ever wondered about these factors, this post is all you have been looking for. If you haven’t, this post is still going to be an interesting read!

The plot:

This is the most important part of a movie. A movie that does not have a good plot cannot do well, no matter how much time and money is invested in it. The most famous cast can be used and the movie will still not do well if it does not have a good plot. A plot is basically the thing about a movie that compels you to check it out! A well developed plot may not even need a famous cast for the movie to be a hit; it will be a hit anyway!

The actors’ skills:

Now the skills of the actor and the actor’s popularity are two very different things. Not all famous actors have to be good at acting. Sometimes, an actor can become famous for having good looks or a unique style. What makes a movie famous is not the popularity of the actor but the quality of the actor’s performance. I remember watching movies with actors who had never been seen before and the movies still becoming a hit owing to the cast’s performance.


What good is a movie that does not have good direction? A good director can make a movie famous, a bad director can make it face losses. You see, the direction of the movie determines how people will perceive the movie. It enhances the performance of the actors, the beauty of the sets and props and the overall impact that the movie has on people. A good director can create a masterpiece in a limited budget than a bad director can with all the resources in the world!


Of course, like everything else, a movie needs to be treated like a product that has been designed to sell. Any product in the modern world requires promotion. With all the marketing jobs that jobuzu search reveals, it’s no secret that marketing and advertising are rapidly developing fields. A movie, in order to be famous, must capture the attention of potential audience in order to do well in the future.

Of course, there are many more factors that can be taken into consideration while trying to determine the reasons behind its success or failure. However, the factors mentioned in this post are perhaps the most crucial in determining on how much popularity a film gets once it hits the screen.


Characteristics of a Good Film Director

Many of us head to the cinema without thinking about how the film was made, who was responsible in making the film an enjoyable experience. We know directors by name such as Woody Allen, Steven Spielberg and James Cameron, but do we know what they do or what characteristics they needed to make them what they are today?

A film director is responsible for every aspect of the film under the direction of the producer. Many directors write and produce their own films as well, but mostly they are responsible for controlling the artistic and dramatic aspects of the film.

They manage everything from the camera angles to lighting and set design. Often film directors also help with finance, editing and writing of the films they direct. As a director you need a vision, you need to see the final product in order to make a film a success.

What Are The Characteristics Needed?

To be a film director you need certain characteristics, the same as you would need certain characteristics to sit in a call center arranging a PPI claim.  While there is no academic requirements for being a film director, having a general idea or experience in film is helpful as you need to coordinating lighting, sets and actors. You can find various colleges offering courses in film, go there to get the experience needed if necessary.

The first characteristic that any film director needs is the ability to visualize the final product, you need to have the ability to outline the plot giving you the end result that you have in your mind.

Directors work very long hours, so if you have an urge to enter this field of film, then be prepared to work agonizing long hours from pre-production to the editing process. The director is normally involved in everything.

You need to be able to take risks, be a storyteller and rely on your own imagination. You are the dedicated server of the film process when you take on the role of director.
