Abstract/Description:
The Happiest Place on Earth is a feature-length film written, directed, and produced by John Goshorn as part of the requirements for earning a Master of Fine Arts in Film (&) Digital Media from the University of Central Florida. The project aims to challenge existing conventions of the American fiction film on multiple levels (-) aesthetic, narrative, technical, and industrial (-)while dealing with a distinctly American subject and target audience. These challenges were both facilitated and necessitated by the limited resources available to the production team and the academic context of the production. This thesis is a record of the film, from concept to completion and preparation for delivery to an audience.
