North Carolina Graduation Project

The challenges of Filmmaking throughout history
For my graduation project I decided to make a short documentary on the challenges of filmmaking. Often times we go to see a film and we either like it or we hate it, but we never take the time to stop and think about what went into the making of that film. In my documentary I discuss the history of film and the challenges that have presented themselves since the first film.
When I first started this project I didn't expect to get much out of it. As I worked on my documentary and research I really started to appreciate what filmmakers do. When I experience some of the challenges while making this documentary, it really made all the work I had done a reality and I was finally able to fully understand what I had been talking about for the past year and a half.
