Writing and directing the short film, Barry.
Access changed 12/11/19.
The following thesis discusses the creative process behind the short film Barry, addressing the pre-production, production, and post-production phases of the film. This includes personal and professional goals for the project, influences on the film and my filmmaking approach in general, an analysis of the film, the methods used in producing the film, and personal reflections on decisions made throughout. Barry is a project that has evolved through a long process of analyzing personal beliefs, fears, and aspirations. In many ways, the film is ambiguous; this is by design. The process outlined in this paper will hopefully shed light on some of the more obscured elements of the film while still allowing the reader and viewer to experience and project his or her own interpretations and experiences onto the final work.
