Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
The course was basically a crash course in all things filmmaking. Everyone that attends the class is very passionate about film and ready to help each other. The course although at times as a lot of work, it paid off in the end.
The highlights was being able to screen our short films at the NYU Brooklyn Campus in the Engineering School. Having the opportunity not only to see your film, but also your classmates films on the big screen teaches you a lot about storytelling. Also working in New York teaches you how to learn quick and survive creating your own film with that knowledge. The whole experience is completely hands on so you learn how a boom mic works, terminology, what makes a completing story, how to use editing software, and how to use the tools around you to make a successful film.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to work extremely hard. Prepare story ideas before coming to class. Take risks with your camera shots and stories, but remember simpler can sometimes be better. Be collaborative with everyone, take all ideas into consideration, and have confidence in your choices because your leading your film; no one is going holding your hand on any of your choices.
