    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course if an extremely fun class to take, even if it is not required. Helen Ditouras is extremely passionate about the subject matter which makes it interesting and worth taking. The movies are unique and offer an extensive knowledge about film and important lessons in life.

    Course highlights:

    Helen Ditouras is sure to cover all the main topics of film study, and she provides additional resources for students who want to learn more. Her movie selection for the class is incredible as long as you don't hate sad films. The professor also uses BlackBoard frequently which is a huge help and gives plenty of time to finish assignments. I would definitely take this course again if I could.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you do not like sad movies, you may want to think twice about taking the class. Most of the films viewed in the class have heavy, sensitive subject matter. There are many assignments throughout the course, so be sure to stay on track and practice time management skills. It is easy to get behind, but they are small, easy assignments as long as you follow the syllabus. Helen also offers a ton of help to make sure that you succeed. If you need to, be sure to visit her office hours and participate in the extra credit. At the end of the course there will either be a research essay about film or a final presentation.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class changed my perspective for art completely on art, especially Film. The teacher was a great man and an even better professor. The class really taught me values of the film industry and gave me a true understanding of what makes a film a good film.

    Course highlights:

    Learning the ins and outs of the movie industry. What it takes to make a quality film, how hard it is to do so. Understanding the effort that is put into each movie regardless of its quality. Learning how to make short films was also very fun as I was able to demonstrate my personal ideas and interests into a film of my own.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try your hardest, study films you are interested in over ones you're going to want to sleep through. Keep yourself motivated and do not forget to express yourself in critical reviews and in your own films.
