Clare Fogerty abstract
This technical report offers a guide and analysis through the preproduction, production, and postproduction strategies used in the making of Wild Game. Additionally, it will take a look at the rich history of the forest setting both in classical storytelling, as well as Estonian folklore. It will also examine the production practices used in recent Estonian film productions with forest sets, and attempt to categorize Wild Game into a genre and context for film marketing strategies. Applying Estonian forest film production techniques to Wild Game and future forest films can streamline production through creative strategy evaluations, location assessments,and the elimination of safety hazards. The lessons learned through this creative process are stepping stones for myself to emerge as a stronger leader and a more empathetic creative producer.
