There is a wide range of steps that go into making any film. Pre-production alone can take up to six months on feature-length films. The labor dedicated to bringing the director's vision to life can take over a year on long form projects. From concept to final cut, the process is simultaneously abstract and technical, demanding unique contributions from every member of the team. It is the director's job to make a film as entertaining as it can possibly be. This is done through careful planning put into the pre-production which is carried through to on-set production and post-production. The culmination of this hard work is the final film, but the process of making a film from the director's point of view can be seen through an important document known as the director's notebook. In a director's notebook, the creative process is captured through all the steps that go into making a film. The purpose of this creative project is to show the entire process of writing and directing a short film by documenting each step in a director's notebook to be shared alongside the final film, Shutter's Affection. Shutter's Affection is a narrative piece aiming to dissect the thought processes behind a serial killer. In this short, a photographer named Martin lives a blissful perfect life with his girlfriend, but soon finds his relationship with her isn't like it is in the photos he's captured of other couples going through their day to day activities. The director's notebook of Shutter's Affection documents all the steps of the creative process, from conception to shooting script, storyboard, and beyond.
