In this paper, I discuss every aspect of the thesis film I made after seven years of film school. I reflect upon the many rewrites, and differences between the original script versus the final product. The paper mentions the process of working with the actors, as well as the visual motifs in the film. Certain obstacles, such as a lack of production designer and the difficulty of obtaining a special effects makeup artist are also discussed. I also go into post-production and things that I would have done differently if I could do it all again. Lastly, I discuss what I have benefitted from going to film school for seven years, as well as what I hope to do in the future with this experience
