In this paper I will discuss, analyze, and explain the process of creating my thesis film, The Mary Janes. I will begin with a discussion of the theme, and continue with explaining each aspect of making the film in relation to that theme. I will recount my greatest challenges during the process. I will also relate my use of knowledge and skills accumulated through study. Finally, I will analyze the outcome of the work of art, and question how well my theme was actualized and understood. I will evaluate the film as whole, including the process of creation, successes and failures, and determine how well I was able to create a clearly articulated story with a strong genre style.
