AbstractIf a piece of art is most successful and effective when it is a homogenous work of a singular vision, then films should not be successful as an art form. Over the course of a film’s life, from conception to end credits, there are a myriad of people involved in numerous different stages. By taking the reader step-by-step through the making of my senior thesis short film Non-Smoking Section, my goal is twofold. First, it is to educate and inform on the basics of the filmmaking process, starting with Development, and ending with Post-Production. Second, by detailing the process, I hope to highlight the innumerable decisions and circumstances that conspire to alter the direction of a film. Hopefully, by the end, it is apparent how preposterous the odds are that a film even get completed in the first place, let alone if it ends up being a quality piece of work.
