    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Everyone thinks they are a photographer or videographer these days because of their iphones with filters that allow them to create their own art. However, there are only a handful of people left that know how to shoot on a film platform. The grit and mood that gets captured on film is something that can't be replicated on digital no matter how advanced technology becomes. The authenticity of film is irreplaceable. This class taught us the fundamentals of shooting, how to adjust to get the perfect shot, and how to train our eyes to shoot things in a way you wouldn't normally see.

    Course highlights:

    As stated above, I learned how to shoot on film. I also gained a real appreciation for filmmakers who continue to use film as their main platform. Using film instead of digital is a hundred times the work which explains why digital is so commonly the option best fit.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions and keep shooting. If you want to understand, you'll get it. Everything takes lots of practice.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because this class puts you right away into filming. Getting all the materials together to film your assignments and have other students watch yours and get honest and real feedback.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is in general, going out there and filming your own ideas. It couldn't be better than working hard on a film, because once you finish, you're so proud of how good it turned out, and you become eager to know what your fellow classmates thought of your film.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just to not procrastinate and really focus on the big picture when you film, think of how it would look hen you put it together as you film.
