Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend this course for undergraduate students who are well versed in documentary filmmaking and for graduate students who are being introduced to the subject. The class is small (around 15 people) and the professor is helpful in giving detailed feedback of your work. Be prepared to write a lot, for this class requires you to write proposals and treatments.
I learned that we need to be practical when it comes to pitching stories in class. The topic needs to be of interest to you and requires a lot of visuals.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to pick a story topic that interests you ahead of time. You need to prepare to write, research, and film that story.
