This paper will follow the creative process which I underwent while making the film “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Starting with the initial inspiration and breaking down each process so that the reader may better understand my creative motivations for the film. The Character and Set Design, along with Lighting and Rendering will be paid the most attention because, in my studies, these areas were where most of my attention was being placed. I will discuss the creative choices which were made in each area, and finish with the first official screening of the film as well as the audience's comments and reactions.
