    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a prerequisite for Screenwriting. To be able to fully grasp the structure of a movie, this class walks you through it. It's a lecture and everyone's ideas and interpretations build off each other.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to organize the events of any movie into a three act structure. Also I learned how character and theme from the screenplay connects to the directing and how to detect it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the reading material. The discussions in the class weigh heavy on the reading. Also to get better at understanding screenplays is by reading them.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is fun sometimes and dull other times. Make sure you watch the movies and do all of the assignments. he can be kind of a picky grader. I want to be writer/director and I found this class somewhat helpful.

    Course highlights:

    The films watched in this class were incredible. We dove into the world of Paul Thomas Anderson, Steven Soderbergh, and more. There were only a few essays and quizzes throughout the duration of the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch the movies, read any assigned texts, and participate in the discussions. If you want to know more about film and the structure it follows, this film will be great for you.
