In this analysis, I plan to describe how I developed and wrote three episodes of a comedy web series. In the beginning of my paper, I will discuss the importance of my cultural background and how it shaped my appreciation of a wide variety of artistic expression. I then will discuss the contrast of art I experienced in my academic compared to my domestic life. I will then focus on the importance of television and film in my life. Specifically, I will discuss how I was influenced by popular television at a young age. I will discuss viewing sinister films at led to my appreciation for dark comedy. In my view dark comedy, more than other genre, puts a spotlight on society ills. My web series is titled The Force. In addition, I will also describe how my aesthetics of my favorite comedy shows assisted in my development of the screenplays. In the final section, I will discuss what I plan to do after I graduate with a Television, Radio, Film degree from Syracuse University. I will elaborate on how this project has influenced me to become more interested in the creative opportunities in the television industry.
