    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Reading Movies to anyone interested because of how opens your eyes to a new type of literature style, which would be cinematography. The course also serves as a reminder that writing is not exclusive to novels.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about the many aspects that are involved with film like how different angels and shot produced a different mood to a film and how there are people the specifically deal with aspects we find so unimportant when viewing like the lighting or set.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't go into this course thinking that all you are gonna do is have a free period of watching movies because that is not the case here. You are actually analyzing the components that went into making the film and how they are used

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend every junior attending a high school to take this course. During the first semester, you'll be taking at least two tests each month but you'll be done by the second to last month before the first semester ends. The tests are based on notes that are taken during class. You'll ace this class if you study lots. Lastly, the final is the easiest final you will ever take. All you have to do is create a music video and you are done with the first semester.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of taking this coarse is that you'll be watching so many fascinating movies that were taken during the 40s and 50s. You won't want to miss a day because you will miss out on a lot interesting scenes. I learned that only 1% of movies were in color during 1936. I also learned that Dolly-in is moving towards a subject and Dolly-out is moving away from the subject. You'll also be learning about camera angles, miss-en-scene, and cinematography.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are planning on taking this coarse, I highly recommend that you study for your tests. In addition, have a good memorization of deadlines. We do haiku discussions every week; however, if you miss the day it was due, the teacher will not accept late work.
