    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I attended Penn State University from 1995 - 1997 and was a member of the Film / Video program. Not only did I study film production, but also took classes in screenwriting and film theory. The film theory course was particularly memorable. Professor Jeanne Hall was an excellent instructor. We would watch a film and then she would do a fantastic job of breaking down every facet of the production, offering new insights and allowing our own opinions and critiques.

    Course highlights:

    Watching classic films and then being able to write your own criticism essays was a lot of fun, but also educational and informative. We learned how to understand how film directors went about their craft, the philosophies behind the storytelling and the symbolism behind certain scenes within a production. By writing our own viewpoints on a film, we were allowed to express ourselves in profound ways, while gaining insight into the ways others think and see the world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have an open mind when taking this course. This is not about sitting back and watching a movie for entertainment, but learning about different perspectives, identifying metaphors and symbolism within a production and being able to provide your own educated opinion on the craft of film-making within proper context.
