Tips:

Camera Choice: From the ARRI Alexa Mini LF's large format sensor to the nostalgic Kodak Super 8, your camera choice sets the foundational tone.
Lighting: Whether it's the dramatic chiaroscuro or the natural silhouette lighting, lighting shapes the mood.
Texture: From the organic feel of film grain to the edgy digital noise, texture adds depth.
Color Grading: Techniques like the vibrant orange and teal or the classic monochrome dictate the visual temperature and feel.
Lines & Shapes: Use compositional techniques like the rule of thirds or dynamic diagonals to guide the viewer's eye and add visual interest.
