Abstract

The goal of this paper is to outline the process of making the film North Star. This paper follows the director from the very concept until beyond the final screening of the film. Included in the paper are supplemental materials, including stills, original proposal, shooting script, and budget.

North Star follows a man, Will, on the run from something in his past. Will meets a boy, Caleb, and the film follows their adventures in an unnamed town. North Star was conceived as a “take” on the classic Western genre. It was shot, edited, and scored digitally.
