The Elements of Cinema

–A Student’s Guide to the fundamentals of film-making


Website produced by film student Gabriel Moura, who says:

Elements of Cinema was designed with young filmmakers and film/video students in mind. Our goal is to provide film knowledge and offer a comprehensive, well-written, easy-to-navigate website that covers many elements of filmmaking, including but not limited to, cinematography, editing, screenwriting, and directing. In our methodology, we break each one of those areas to their bare bones. We focus on the obvious and the obscure tricks of trade.



It is a textbook, as he says, and looks like it will be very useful.
