    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a most informative course. Professor Brusutti demonstrates a very thorough knowledge of nearly all aspects of film, whether it be genre, technicalities, or sound. However there was so much information that it became a little overwhelming and boring to listen to at times, but you definitely can never leave class without coming away with something significant.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned to notice technical elements whenever I watch a film. In doing so, I can now better understand the story of the film, and what the director and writers of a movie were trying to communicate. Overall I have learned to appreciate films and the effort that goes into creating them more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always go to section and always do the reading. If you can, do the recommended extra readings, and always go to class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor is great! She has passion and knowledge about what she is talking about. She also has lots of experience. This course is not easy because a lot of new terms pop up and it is basically a new subject to learn. Keep up with the readings and ask the professor and your TA about anything you're confused about!

    Course highlights:

    I loved the films we watched and then discussed. This course really makes you look at films in a different view because you focus on the elements of film making and it is great.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study tips for this course is to keep up with the readings and always keep up with the films too. Also, ask questions whether it's through email or office hours, it's worth it.
