    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course used clips from various films to breakdown what techniques were being employed. This was very helpful in gaining a better perspective of film as an art form.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was understanding film not only as a source of entertainment but also an art form. I watch films from a more analytical perspective, paying attention to artistic choice.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take very good notes. Be opened minded. Shift your perspective from a movie-goer to a filmmaker. Attention to detail is very important when watching clips and films.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very interesting class that teaches of film in the U.S. We got to take notes of each film that we watched and did a few presentations. Overall, professor Jacobsen makes cinema be a fun topic to learn about.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were Professor Jacobsen's positive attitude in teaching this course. You will get to laugh a few times in his lectures.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow his instructions exactly for what he expects on his assignments, make sure you write your notes at college writing level, do not miss class EVER, participate, and study word per word the notes for his quizzes because you can miss the format of the actual quiz if you do not know the paragraphs he gives you to study word per word.
