Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because it is really interesting to see the first films and how they have been made. Professor Smoodin was very into the subject matter and made the class much more interesting by leaving some time for questions.
You learn the basics of a film in this course, which are really fun! Then you delve deeper into the subject as you learn more about the first historic filmmakers that shone a light on cinema, or "moving pictures" as they would say! I learned how much of a thought process that a future length movie requires, as well as the very interesting concept of silent movies.

Advice for students:
Just make sure you go to the lectures and work on your paper as you go. Don't hesitate to ask any questions to the professor and this class would be more fun with a friend, as you can exchange ideas for your essays.
