As one of the unique national elements, national art elements are worthy of reference and application in film art creation. The film makers apply the characteristic national art elements to the film making process. It can not only improve the visual artistic effect of film works, sublimate the artistic value and aesthetic experience of films, but also make film works full of national charm and show the nationality of films. However, at present, the application degree and effect of characteristic national art elements in multi-type film production still can't reach the expectation, which has affected the spread of national art elements and the development of multi-type films. Faced with this situation, this paper studied the application environment of national art elements in various types of film production. The application of national art elements in character modeling design, film color and film composition has been explored, and relevant experimental research has been carried out. The research showed that there was still a lot of room for development in the application of national art elements in various types of film making. National art elements were applied to various types of film production, which could improve the composition quality of film images by 2.84% and the color saturation by 5.07%. The audience's evaluation of film images after incorporating the elements of national art is also higher.
