Title: Strongest
Author: Auritt, Michael
Abstract: "Strongest" is a short film, produced in the School of Film and Animation at RIT. It is a science-fiction film noir about a woman, Rose, who is searching for her husband. In the process of searching for him, she uncovers his dark secrets and strange scientific experiments. The film was shot almost exclusively using a greenscreen with backgrounds and other effects being placed in post-production. This manuscript examines the filmmaking process from script writing to shooting to completed film. During the stages of preproduction, production, and post-production many challenges were faced. Some of these challenges were overcome to produce quality work. Others, led to mistakes which prevented "Strongest" from reaching it's full potential. Greenscreen footage was not always captured properly which added hours of extra work to the post-production process and made achieving a fully-integrated style difficult and, in some cases, impossible. However, because of these mistakes, valuable lessons could be taken away in order to avoid problems on future films. These lessons include screenwriting techniques, proper greenscreen procedures, and the use of post-production tools. Whatever the film's flaws, "Strongest" was a success in terms of the knowledge that was gained to avoid problems on future projects.
