Writing an M.A. thesis is like wrestling a mountain troll. It requires research to know how to attack it, a committee of elders to give you guidance, and support from other fellow adventurers to tackle the beast without getting discouraged. When it is all said and done you are left feeling euphoric and tired, ready to head back home and sleep off the soreness of night after night of hard work.
However, in the middle of the fight, you need to keep your brain from exploding as you plot and plan your next move. It was during one of these breaks that "The Thesis" trailer was made with my fellow thesi (pronounced like fungi) adventurers.
I shot the trailer on my iPad in iMovie because it was as easy as dropping clips into a template.
