Making Film Independently: Creating a Short Film
MetadataShow full item record
In an effort to improve my filmmaking abilities, I used this thesis to create my first independent film project. My thesis begins with detailing the steps I took in creating this film, starting with the writing of my screenplay and the researching of topics relevant to the subject of the script. Next, I examine the steps of pre-production in recruiting cast and crew, and preparing the script to be shot. Then, I explain parts of the filming process and a few of the error I made while on set. Subsequently, I talk about the editing and post-production of the film, and the challenges that brought. Finally, I discuss the "so, what?" of this project, and how this film has already and will affect me in my future career path of becoming a filmmaker. In conclusion, I outline what comes next for this film project. With this explanation of my project, I believe I have demonstrated the struggles it takes and the dedication needed to create a short film mostly by oneself.
