Film Bro’s Thesis Project Just 12-Minute Close-Up Of Woman Applying Lipstick

Published Friday, September 16th, 2022

According to sources, MCM concentrator and film bro Max Cahill’s thesis project is just a twelve-minute close-up of a woman applying lipstick.

“It’s sort of a microcosm for the natural way we’re born versus the layers we put on to be accepted by society,” said writer-director Max Cahill ’23 while adjusting the zoom lens so that only the woman’s lips were visible. “I know it’s pretty complex; it probably takes a couple of viewings.”

“I think, for me, length was less important than precision,” said Cahill, defending the importance of making the clip last an entire 12 minutes. “We’re able to access a lot more specificity by really sitting in the scene.”

At press time, Cahill was setting up his next project, a claymation short film of a woman putting on a shoe.
