    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Jacobson is very passionate about cinema. He gives you everything you need to be successful in the class, you just have to be willing to put in the work. He wants you to do well and is always willing to work with you.

    Course highlights:

    I will never watch a film the same way again. There are so many techniques used in order to force our minds to go to a certain place that we are not even aware of. It is very cool to see the way that movies are made and all the wrk that goes into making a good film.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to write. Pay attention in class and show up for every class and you will do fine. Its not a class you can be lazy in. you can relax and watch movies all the time but you still have to put in the work and it'll all work out.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course and absolutely loved it. My teacher went above and beyond to make sure that we all succeeded. I felt that he really cared about each one of us .He would always make the material very easy to understand and do his best to answer questions. We were having the class held at a high school campus so when they let out for the summer they wanted to make us move but he stepped in and advocated for us ,and Guess what ?We got to stay.They're were ample opportunities for extra credit and not to mention he let us to have open notes on our quizzes. He was just an all around an amazing teacher!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were mainly different aspects of film such as the history ,origin and lighting styles. I learned a lot of things that were very interesting and that would be useful if I ever decide to become a director.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need the textbook listed on the syllabus and a solid work ethic .However half the battle is just showing up and paying attention.
