What Makes a Cinematic Video?

The word “cinematic” is a general term, referring to any video or film produced with the features of quality motion pictures.

Though there are no definite rules to the making of it, many would agree that a cinematic-look video features unique storytelling (e.g. flashback, through characters, or chapters, etc.) and impresses viewers with thoughtful composition, delicate lighting, subtle color grading, engaging music and sound effects, thrilling camera movements like a long take, choreography, and other visual effects.

For beginners of videography and cinematography, we broke down the formula of a cinematic video into the following 9 actionable strategies for you.

How to Make a Cinematic Video in both Filming and Editing

1. Frame Your Shots to Create Depth

Placing the actors and props in the right place is essential to filming. It helps to direct the audience's attention and create visually-appealing images.

  • Use the Rule of Thirds (also known as the golden ratio)

  • Use the rule of thirds, dividing the frame into trisection vertically and horizontally separately. It’s better to place the subject on the cross point to emphasize the subject or highlight your theme and make the frame feel more cinematic and comfortable.

    Use the role of thirds for cinematic video composition

  • Use Camera Angle to Create Depth

  • Place your subject between the foreground and background to create depth and dimension for the cinematic vibes.

    Use the leading line to create depth for a cinematic video

    Any objects like tree branches, chairs, and crowds can be used as a foreground while using leading lines like pathways, long corridors, and winding stairs are great tools to create a sense of space to direct your viewers' attention. Check out the 10 best film composition techniques.

    2. Create Shallow Depth of Field

    The depth of field defines the visible area between the subject to the camera and to the background.

    Shallow depth of field video enables you to create blurry backgrounds or dreamy bokeh and makes your subject pop up from the background. So, viewers can focus on your subject and your video looks more cinematic.

    F 1.4 large aperture lens and blurry background it produces

    There are 3 ways to create a shallow depth of field when filming:

  • Use prime lenses with a large aperture. Look at the No. of “F” on your lens, the smaller the number, the larger the aperture. So you can create a shallow depth of field, making your video look more cinematic. For example, a 50mm F1.4 lens produces superior creamy bokeh to that of a 50mm F4 lens.

  • Move the subject far away from the background. You may ask the subject to come closer to your camera. So the longer the subject-background distance, the more blurry the background would be.

  • Use a telescope lens to film your subject. With a longer focal distance like using a 70mm-200mm lens, the lens compression will have a larger subject and more blurry background than a shorter 50mm or 85mm lens.

  • Use depth of field in film

    One thing to mention, though the shallow depth of field does help your subject stand out from the background, just don’t overuse it. Otherwise, you will lose too much background information, which is not good for storytelling.

    3. Avoid Shaky Footage and Use Flexible Camera Movements

    Filming stable footage is essential to making a cinematic video and sets your videos apart from the amateurs. To avoid shaky footage, you can mount your camera on a tripod or a camera dolly (wheeled cart) to pan or tilt the camera.

    Handheld vs Gimbal footage

    In actual filming, a flexible way to create the cinematic camera moment is using an affordable 3-Axis handheld gimbal stabilizer and moving closely forward to show the emotions on the subject's face or moving backward to introduce the setting of the story.

    9 Best Hacks to Make a Cinematic Video with Any Camera 2022 (5)

    Use a 3-Axis gimbal stabilizer to film stable and cinematic footage.

    Particularly in action films or scenes to portray the protagonist's inner feelings, using gimbals to move around the subject is the best option to create the cinematic vibes. Of course, you need to practice a lot.

    However, if you are in a rush to meet the deadline or can’t afford a stabilizer, you can fix the visual vibration with the Warp Stabilizer in Adobe Premiere Pro. But, anything that can be fixed in real-time filming should not be left in the post-production.

    4. Properly Use Slow Motion

    Slow-motion is widely used in motion pictures to enhance a dramatic moment like the falling of raindrops, or the movement of the bullet as you have seen in the movie “The Matrix”.

    Bullet dodge scene in “The Matrix”

    Slow-motion occurs when the filming frame rate exceeds its playback frame rate. For example, you film a video at 60FPS or 120 FPS and play it back at 24 FPS, which is a standard framerate for film production, the subject’s movement will become much slower. Or you can do it by filming a 60/120FPS video and converting it to 24FPS in Adobe Premiere Pro.

    Another great alternative is to use the “Speed Controller” of FlexClip to slow down portions of a video up to 0.2x slower to add rhythm to the video and make the scene transition more dramatic. Just upload your footage to FlexClip free online video editor and adjust the time speed in clicks. Super easy.

    5. Use Cinematic Lighting Techniques

    Apart from the aesthetic composition, a cinematic video also features dramatic lighting, another powerful way to create depth and shape a character's personality.

    To have the cinematic lighting in your videos, you need to pay attention to 3 things:

  • Maintain 4:1 to 8:1 lighting ratio. To simply put, keep a higher contrast ratio between the bright and dark side of the subject’s face, instead of evenly lighting the subject. This will help your videos look more cinematic. A typical lighting example is the Rembrandt lighting.

  • 9 Best Hacks to Make a Cinematic Video with Any Camera 2022 (8)

  • Create background separation and depth. A go-to choice is to use 3 lights setup: a key light placed at 45 degrees facing the subject, a less powerful fill light set opposite the key light to lighten the shadow of the subject, another back/rim light placed back of the subject to add a flattering and cinematic light on the outline of the subject.

    You may use other decorative lights like small Christmas lights or lamps to create interesting layers and great background separation for the cinematic vibes. Since not everyone can afford high-end lighting kits, you can buy affordable Led lights on amazon to your needs.

    For beginners, if you ended up with underexposed video footage, you may use FlexClip’s adjustment tool to brighten your videos. Follow the link to learn how to adjust video brightness.

    6. Apply Color Grading

    Color grading video footage is one of the most effective ways to add a touch of cinematic look to your movie and set the tone for the video footage.

    Just as photographers refine the color tone of raw photos for retouching, you can adjust the hue, saturation, and luminance of your movie to get the desired contrast and fix the skin tone of actors and evoke special emotions.

    The key for color grading is being subtle and natural, esp. for the skin tone of the subject. Don’t overdo it.

    Here is the difference between unedited raw footage and the one with color-grading.

    Before and after effect after color grading raw footage with FlexClip

    An easy way to color grade your videos is using FlexClip free online video editor. Upload your video footage and press the "Adjustment" button, and fine-tune the color temperature, contrast, saturation, tint, shadow, and vignette, etc. to get the visual effects or atmosphere you prefer.

    Or you can use Adobe Premiere Pro’s Lumetri tool to color grade your videos or upload a Lut (Look Up Table or a ready-made color-grading template) to apply it to your videos. Then, you can adjust the colors of the highlight, mid-tone, and shadow of your videos.

    Another alternative is Premiere Pro’s “Adjustment Layer”. So you can apply the color-grading to the adjustment layer and put it over the video tracks to color-grade the video.

    7. Use Cinematic Music and SFX

    Adding cinematic music and sound effects is another key factor that defines a cinematic video.

    In terms of cinematography, adding the proper cinematic music or sound effects to your film can effectively heighten the atmosphere and shape the character’s emotional response and add a rhythm to the scenes and storytelling, etc.

    8. Add Cinematic Fonts and Text Effects

    Like color grading, using cinematic fonts is another way to add an extra cinematic touch to your videos. While which exact font you need depends on the theme of your movie, personal preference, and others.

    Here are 13 cinematic fonts favored by Hollywood filmmakers:

  • Arial

  • Impact

  • Open Sans

  • Helvetica

  • Montserrat

  • Product Sans

  • Museo Sans

  • Didot
