    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    You watch a movie every class, then you have to write a 4 paragraph response to it. Grading is pretty lenient. The hardest part are the quizzes, but even those aren't that hard if you read the book.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how movies are made, the instructor has even taken part in making films, he is very passionate about film. He wants you to enjoy film as much as him. I learned how to appreciate films that I didn't like and how to recognize key aspects of filmography that I never knew existed. There are so many movies that I never would have guessed were filmed in front of a green-screen.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take you time on the film reports (by take you time I mean spend at least an hour on them) write 4 full paragraphs. He is a stickler for format but provides a template, follow that, write useful paragraphs in your screen reports and its hard to not get an A on them. DO NOT FORGET: Cite the film you watched as a source, its really the only thing you needed to cite. Its sorta hard to get 100% because there is usually some little formatting error or something but 95%+ on screen reports are not hard at all. Plus you can watch extra films and write screen reports for extra credit.
