A great way to relax after a stressful day at work and tiring school activities is to watch a movie. This penchant of many people to movies prompts the investment of million dollars for it.
What Makes a Motion Picture Good and Interesting?
Movie is considered as one of the most effective tools that keeps us informed and entertained. As they say, a movie can depict real life stories. Thus, entertainment industries create flicks that would make us laugh, cry, fall in love, and amazed.
Banking on the motion picture’s effectiveness as a marketing strategy, each distributing firm flashes their trademark and name at the start of the show. Thus, well-designed film company logos should be the symbol of remarkable watching experience.
In the motion picture industry, it is equally important to spend dollars for smart ideas in choosing a symbol to create strong identity to your audience. Film company logos play a significant role in identifying a successful flick. A distributing firm will be recognized and appreciated for valuing a fan’s money.
Aside from having a well-designed art piece, a good flick is characterized for these qualities:
- Persuade Emotion- A good motion picture should make us think, talk, listen, and affect our emotions. A good example of these may include “Marley and Me” (2008), “Alpha Dog” (2006), “Mystic River” (2003), “Armageddon” (1998), “Leon: The Professional” (1994), “Titanic” (1997), and “Forrest Gump” (1994).
- Informative- It should also give new information to its audience. This characteristic is seen on science fiction and documentaries that educates viewers with the latest discoveries, future events, and real life stories. A good example may include “Moon” (2009), “Avatar” (2009), “Man on Wire” (2008), and “Fahrenheit 9/11” (2004).
- Inspirational- A movie should inspire its audience in a good way. It should encourage people to overcome barriers, hardships, and struggles. The ability of flick makers to affect our emotions also depends on the script, actors, and story. Examples may include “300” (2006), “Braveheart” (1995), “Mulan” (1998), “Rocky” (1976), “Rudy” (1993), “The Notebook” (2004), and “The Pursuit of Happiness” (2006).
- Plot- This is the most important part. Without it, your audience may lose interest and will not watch again from the same firm. It should give twists to the story that would retain and prolong viewer’s interest.
- Actors- Actors play an important role in a successful and worth-watching motion picture. They give life and meaning to characters that they portray. A good actor should deliver his script effectively and make sure that his character would leave an impact to audience.
Aside from the characteristics of a good movie, a distributing firm’s emblem makes it more interesting. It is a sign that it will start after the lights go down and the crowd gets silent.
