Let’s Learn Filmmaking Together

Wikipedia: Film Crew

Hi there,

Welcome to Elements of Cinema, your  web portal with tutorials and lessons on many different concepts and techniques in filmmaking. You will find articles about screenwriting, cinematography, directing, editing, and more!

My name is Gabriel Moura, and I am filmmaker and writer currently based in Los Angeles. I started this blog in a moment in my life when I was surrounded by movies and filmmaking. The year was 2010, and in addition to being a film student,  I had just worked on a professional film set for the first time.  My head was exploding with concepts and techniques I had just learned, and what I really wanted to do was share them. So Elements of Cinema was born.

(To learn more about me and how this blog came about, check our About page.)

I’m not gonna lie to you and say that I know everything about filmmaking, but with this blog, I hope we can learn a few things together, and I will share my findings as I go along.
