Film Guide


Title cards to be found here:

If you are using text inside your videos, please use this template:

Film Structure

  • Open with the best 2 or 3 shots of your work to capture the audience’s attention, then cut to the orange title card. 
  • End the film with the orange end card. If suitable add a few final shots after that. 
  • No fading effects or transitions in and out the orange title cards because orange doesnt fade well. Its okay to use fade to black/white. 

Do’s and Don’t

Consistently use the same font with same size. 

Have your opening shots work to make people ask questions like “whats that? I haven’t seen something like that before, i must keep watching and find out”

Don’t make spelling mistakes – Always check your film for spelling

Don’t animate text unless important

Don’t use bold and regular text – especially not in the same text

Don’t excessively use effects to obviously manipulate video footage nor use cliche film transitions (e.g. folding or venetian blinds)
