Abstract

As a Media Arts major specializing in Film and Television Production, my senior project reflects on the skills I have acquired over the past four years in terms of film production, marketing, and communications.

I entered the New England Sports Network's Next Producer Contest in late October and was challenged to create a short documentary about any topic relating to sports. I chose to film a sport NESN audiences have never seen before: the story of a woman Muay Thai kickboxer. Completing the project in less than a month, I did all of my own pre-production work and public relations outreach, cinematography and filming, and, finally, editing and post-production.

Out of the 24 submissions NESN had of its college-level student filmmakers, I made it as one of the top three finalists. Thus, since my first submission, I have had two interview shoots, traveled several times to the NESN studios in Watertown, MA, have met with countless media executives, producers, and filmmakers, and have been featured on two television episodes aired on the network.

In order to determine the winner of the competition, which results in a prize of $20,000 and a job opportunity as a producer at NESN, I was asked to create a 60 second promotional vignette for the marketing team of the Boston Red Sox. The two judges, Hollywood producer Brad Falchuck, and Red Sox owner, Tom Werner, will be choosing the winner April 5th.
