This thesis documents the production of a seventeen-minute narrative film production, Submit. It includes chapters outlining the development, pre-production, production and post-production stages. In addition, the script, shot lists, equipment request form, budget, and camera reports are included. Written, produced, and directed by the author, Submit is the story about a man's desire to right his life by winning back a former love. The story involves deceit and plays with notions of identity and place. The film was shot in seven days throughout the City of New Orleans. The goal of this project was to create a short piece that in turn would be employed to garner further resources to shoot a feature length film.
