    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There are so many details in films of all genres that I have never come to realize until taking this course. I have now found that as I am watching a movie, many more things jump out at me. For example, symbolism. One instance of this is in the movie The Wizard of Oz. The emerald city in all of its green glory symbolizes the financial failures of the Great Depression. The beginning​ of the film is in black and white because they did not have any money in Kansas. However, once in Oz, the colors were vibrant representing success.

    Course highlights:

    The most valuable piece of information I brought out of this course is the use of symbolism in films. The directors and writers meticulously place things in the settings and sets of a movie. You must pay attention to the entire screen ​rather than only the people speaking.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay current and always read the material you are assigned. Without this, you will definitely struggle through the course. Also, use a massive amount​ of details in your discussion posts. Taller is a tough grader, but a wonderful instructor.
