The purpose of this thesis is to have developed a competent pre-production packet for a feature length indie movie set in the South that would pique the interest of potential investors, while having ascertained the knowledge and skill set to fully realize the script as a leader of the project. Methods to achieve this goal include working on movie sets from all angles to gain first hand experience—from directing to holding sound equipment—and researching the market potential from films of a similar genre to see if this venture is worthwhile financially for myself and other stakeholders. After working on sets for the last few years, I believe that I have developed many of the skills needed to run a movie set and found a competent film crew to make the project reach the best quality possible. Further, the popularity of Southern film today, as well the steady rise of independent filmmakers, would suggest that there is a great opportunity for this film to fare well financially. After the last few years of work, I feel that this project has enough talent behind it to reach a quality that would allow it to attract the audience of Southern film lovers.
