Film, microbudget, mumblecore, digital, narcissism, fame
This thesis presents an account of the making of 15 Minutes of Faye, a microbudget feature-length film created in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Film and Digital Media at the University of Central Florida. It chronicles the motivation behind the creation of the film, the entire creation process, plans for its distribution, and reflections on lessons learned during the creation process. The film itself was designed to challenge its viewers with the gross self-absorption of its fame-seeking protagonist, in order to promote public discourse about Generation Y's sense of entitlement, which has been well-documented in academic literature. It is the author's hope that this document will promote awareness of the film's subject matter, and will also aid others seeking to create microbudget feature-length films.
