One of the biggest limitations for a film editor can be the footage he or she has to work on. To develop and create an incredible footage, one needs an in-depth knowledge of the framing and composition to begin with. Apart from the knowledge stated above, one needs to know the basic rules of composition that convert your film into an awe-inspiring viewing. These rules can apply to various situations and settings to enhance the visual effects of the film and bring out your thought process in a better manner. In terms of filmmaking and photography, composition refers to what your camera can see through the lens or what is captured in particular frame. This is also what your audience gets to view. It’s easy just to point your camera for cinematography towards your subject and let it run without a second thought. However, if you take just a moment to think through your shot first, it will make a huge impact on your film. 

Let’s look at some rules of composition that provide you with a creative edge and enhance your footage by a great deal. 

1. The Rule Of Thirds: The rule of thirds is a well-known concept, and chances are that as a filmmaker you are already familiar with it. The basic idea behind this concept is that your shot will immediately look better if you place the subject in one third of your frame. You can either visualize the frame divided into three parts or set your full frame mirror cameras to show a grid while you shoot. This grid divides your frame into nine blocks; three vertical and three horizontal sections. One reason for the success of the rule of thirds is that adding the subject or the point of interest on the thirds helps eliminate the unnecessary distractions. It also helps highlight what the character is feeling and provides a certain amount of balance to the frame. 

2. Symmetry: The second rule of composition that works wonderfully for filmmakers is to create a sense of symmetry within the frame. It is has been established that the human brain responds well to symmetry. It brings about harmony and balance to the footage, which is a great way to get your point across the screen. The following scenarios are some of the best situations to implement this rule: 

• To convey the beauty of a scene. 

• To help your audience focus on your subject.

In fact, symmetry is the one time when breaking the rule of thirds works. If you want the subject to stand out, you can put them at the center of the frame. Symmetry is frequently used in moments when a character is experiencing a powerful moment. It draws the viewer’s attention to them in a unique way. 

People don’t walk away from your video thinking about individual shots. They’ll walk away with thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and you get to lead them along the journey. These rules for better shot composition is just the starting point. So, get out there and start experimenting. You’ll quickly see how your productions will improve!
