I thought that this project was really interesting but it was really difficult to get everything together. A couple of my friends are roommates and they are *always* fighting over the thermostat so I thought it would be really authentic to make my movie about one of their fights. I decided that my friend Lauren would be the protagonist because usually I side with her during their fights. I made her the protagonist through a couple of different ways. One way I did this was by having her doing homework in the movie, while her roommate Katie is watching TV. Also, when Lauren was changing the thermostat, she kept changing it to the same temperature, while Katie kept increasing it just to make Lauren mad. In the end, I showed the viewers that Lauren was the protagonist by having her win the fight and locking Katie outside the apartment.
