First Reality: A Role Playing Game Parody

Abstract

Few personal projects demand as much time, effort, and dedication than does the making of an amateur film. Contrary to popular thought, amateur filmmaking is not inherently simple - it presents unique and difficult challenges unknown to professional filmmaking, from extensive organization and careful research to actor relations and impromptu stagecraft. An amateur in both a monetary and official education sense, I have endeavored to create a short live-action parody of a popular RPG videogame genre with limited funds, resources, and initial skills. Through directed research into its peculiar styles of filmmaking, special effects, and more, I have explored a genre of amateur film I have never before attempted, and have in turn learned a great deal about the hidden complexities to amateur filmmaking. By detailing the process from initial planning to final editing, I hope to convey a higher appreciation for the often undervalued genre of amateur films.
