    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course taught me just how important it is to correlate literature and films, especially with film adaptations. I now fully appreciate changes directors make to a script, what those changes entail, how the set and lighting and music all come together to show an audience a view point that needs to be seen, yet can be interpreted in different ways, just like a novel.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were watching film adaptations after reading the novellas and having massive group discussions about it. We had to think about why someone decided to do the things they did, and what message that gave, and how it made us feel. For example, I had never seen Shawshank before, or read Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King either. The main character in both, the narrator of the tale, Red, is an irish white man with red hair in the novel, but is played by Morgan Freeman in the movie. That change of actor added all new levels of depth and context within the film. We also went as a class to the Ohio State Reformatory and sat in the shot locations of the film.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please, read the course material! If you're asked to read something it is because you will be comparing it to something else down the line. Every assignment in this class has a purpose and also challenges you.
