M.F.A. Thesis Quest (Feature)

15:12 min.

2011

Notes: M.F.A. Thesis Quest documents graduate student, Steve Snell's search for inspiration and a good idea for his Master's Thesis. It is in this adventure and its mediation that Steve confronts the situation of becoming a professional artist, while reflecting an inherent and somewhat awkward egotistical desire to be a movie-like hero. It reveals a person struggling for identity and searching for meaning amidst a world of simulation and appearance. M.F.A. Thesis Quest is the appearance of the story of this struggle.
