    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself has a lot of merit in terms of the history of film and how it evolved over time, but finding the merit in the lessons with a teacher like Andre Puca requires some personal soul searching. Andre is a scatterbrained, tangentially minded, unfocused mess of a proffesor who just happens to know a lot about the material he is teaching. Being in his class is like getting an injection, it’s painful and pretty hard to find the point once it’s inside.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were without a doubt the films that were shown. The screening classes are not only a bonding experience between students, but are all really important movies that clearly and definitively shaped film history. Some of the movies are fun and some are hard to watch, but the merit in watching all of them are clear and educational for film students.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I mean you have to study. That’s the biggest thing. I know that sounds like advice that’s kind of expected, but it’s a necessity for this particular class. Puca’s exams are extremely specific in their questioning and knowing each person mentioned in the notes is an absolute necessity. He does provide study guides which include all the information that will be on the exam, so as long as you learn every piece of information of those, you’ll do fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although she may be a little out there at times, you'll immediately see just how passionate the woman is. She constantly is engaging with her students, and trying to get each and everyone of them to find something in this history that will interest them. She finds new and creative ways to make projects that will help us learn, and actually the quizzes and tests really weren't that hard as long as you kept up to date with her notes (Which she always has online for her students). One of my first, and favorite teachers I ever had here.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the beginning history of film and television production. Starting with some of the first photographs that people put into motion, all the way up to the 1960s, because this was only the 1st part of the history course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to what she says, and what she writes, because many people in the industry know about these people and will be amazed you do too.
