Before learning about the elements of fiction, I only watched movies for entertainment purposes. As soon as I understood what makes a simple movie more complex and layered, I loved learning more!
My favorite element is mood/atmosphere because I love horror movies. A good horror film is filled with creepy moods and atmospheres.
I also want to be an actor and learning about character and different layers helped me add layers to my own drama performances.
Ah, so this is the initial conflict. The rising action will be soon.
Because movies are my favorite thing, the elements of film taught me to look at films more critically as well as have a fun time. I have always wanted to look at films like Roger Ebert, and now I am one step closer!
