In this thesis paper, I will document and analyze the process of making my graduate thesis film, Thrown. I will start by stating my overall thesis statement, then move into the evaluation of my performance in regards to each specific area of the filmmaking process. I will reflect how I translated my learning at the University of New Orleans in a practical application short film exercise and detail my successes and struggles throughout the process. The goal of this investigation is to understand how I can improve in the future. In the end, I will determine if my thesis proves true, the level of my success in individual aspects of filmmaking, and the overall efficacy of Thrown as a short film.
