    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was such a fun class that really taught me how to view film from the perspective of a future film student. It was interesting to learn about different film techniques and how they helped guide and direct the audience to what they should be understanding and taking from the film.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of insights to films and now when I watch movies I am more aware of what is happening and why they did things a specific way.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes in class and stay on top of the film responses.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    George is a fun and engaging teacher. He puts a lot of weight on determining your personality type using the True Colors model. The class itself is just an overview of what putting together a theatre production is like, but it's required, so you may as well get it out of the way ASAP. At least it's super fun!

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was doing our own original productions. They're about 10-15minutes each, but you get to write the script, do costumes, sets, lighting, etc. Definitely fun.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The hardest part of the course was getting practice hours outside of class by being involved in another theatre project. It's easy to find a project to work on, but there are only 10 hours required for the class, and as you all know, a production of almost any scale takes more time than that. So, plan to be in a production on top of all your other classes this semester.
