Soda Pop, the feature-length documentary film by David Bailey, is presented to fulfill the required component toward a Master of Fine Arts in Feature Film Production from The University of Central Florida. This thesis documents research and production choice to pronounce the director's path to discovery of the element of Story beneath the commercialization of the soda industry. Under the guidance of the University of Central Florida Film Department, Soda Pop was accomplished within the parameters set, including the budgetary discipline of micro-level production costs not to exceed the $50,000 threshold. The film's focus and success were from soda archival footage that collaborated with crowdsourced storytellers from across the internet. Soda Pop, the thesis is a journal telling the Story of filmmaking on a defined level, documenting not only the process but also the imagination.
