    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Barrionuevo is one of the friendliest, most energetic, most understandable professors I have ever had. Even if you do not plan to pursue a career in Film or acting, it is a class worth taking in the sense that it will cheer you up and blow your mind. Though not immature, Barrionuevo feels as though he is a friend to me and I found the movies we watched enjoyable and fun to discuss.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the unique selection of movies he chose for us as well as the exploration of the film through in-depth analysis. Though I do not recall all of the terminology used, I do vividly remember each and every film as well as the focus of our discussion of those movies .

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't fall asleep or be rude, but don't stress about it at all. He's here to help and is shaped like a friend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I absolutely loved this course because the teacher was very engaging as was the course itself. In this course you get to watch great films and documentaries, but it is more than just watching movies. You will also analyze the films you watch and the techniques used to make the films successful.

    Course highlights:

    My highlight was getting to watch amazing films and learning about the work that goes into making them. I learned about camera turns, close-ups, mise -en scene in films, and the numerous other techniques used to make the films come to life. The course is very informative and provides relevant information in regard to film.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch the films and definitely read the books required for the course because everything you need to know is in them. If you love film this is the perfect course for you. As i have said before all of the information you learn throughout the course is relevant and very informative. Also participate because it can lead to great discussion as well as make the class fun and interesting. You will have fun in this course and will come to enjoy it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    We watched off the cuff films that weren't secondarily applicable nor entertaining.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the actual filming process and the moving parts that made the production possible.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The class I took met once a week for 1.5 hours and we were required to watch a film or documentary that was 1.5+ hours along with reading assignments. Unless you are really into film, do not take this class.
