The purpose of this project report is to evaluate my role as producer, writer, and actor on the short film, Intervention X. The film was produced to fulfill the thesis requirements for the Master of Fine Arts in Television, Film and Theatre at California State University, Los Angeles. This report will emphasize each aspect of my work differently. The first portion of the report explains my process creating a lead male character who does not necessarily fit the regular cinematic stereotypes. My next goal was to create an antagonist who would challenge my protagonist’s free will. After watching the film, I hope my audience will examine the notion of spiritual forces against their own free will. This paper explains how the genre of magical realism influenced the film. This project allows me to embrace my experience from when I was in my home land, Haiti, and my experience here in the United States. In addition, it allows me to address human struggle and ways of life utilizing a philosophical approach. When I did research for this project, I was on a quest to collect information from people I met or had a close relationship with. So even though the story of this film is fictional, it’s closely related to people’s real-life problems. I hope my readers and viewers will explore this project and find a source of light in it.
