Quarter: Summer 2016
Grade: A+
Aug. 9, 2016

PRO:
-- The class content is really easy. I didn't really study much,simply attending the lectures and read the course materials for two hours before exams, and got full scores on both midterm and final.
-- The lectures are fun. The first hour is basically Prof. Nuse talking about an aspect of film production, the knowledge. The second hour is clips viewing of multiple films that echo the subject discussed in the lecture. This is usually the most interesting part because you get to see a wide range of diverse styles. The rest of the lecture is screening of an entire film. Sometimes the film is interesting, but other times it's kinda boring, especially with the very cold temperature inside the theater, really sleep-inducing.
-- The workload isn't heavy. You've got four journals, each one corresponding to one film screened in class, and due one week after the screening. You don't even need to think about what to write because Prof. Nuse would give you a list of questions to consider, and you just write the answers and organize them into an essay, The length isn't required but normally people write around 1000 words.
-- The textbook is required but basically of no use. The contents are not on the tests, and are mostly reading for fun. All you need to know is the "study guides" and "screening notes" Prof. Nuse posts on CCLE after each lecture. To make things easier, he even gives you an "important questions" list before tests, so you just need to know the answers to those plus having some impressions of the contents on the study guides and you'll be fine.
CON:
-- This is an easy class, so most people don't go to lectures. Which seems kind of sad, especially during the last few lectures I counted only around 15 people present.
-- You won't learn that much. I mean, you'll get a sense of how various aspect of film production works, but you won't get to practice, and the knowledge isn't deep at all. So if you really want to learn something about films, skip this class. If you're aiming for some relaxed fun and probably gains some tangible knowledge, go for this.
GRADING:
Four journals, each counts towards 10 percent. One midterm and one final, each counts towards 30 percent. 90 percent is required for A. As for A+ I'm not sure, but I assume around 95 percent.
TESTS:
For midterm, 35 multiple choice questions. Memorize the pictures on the screening notes, I'll tell you no more. For final, 15 MCQ plus 10 short-answer questions. Don't be afraid, these questions are really basic and are either analysis of the films screened in class which you can bullshit around, or listed in the important topic list so you can prepare beforehand.

You would really need to NOT GIVE A SHIT AT ALL to not score an A in this class.

Nuse is the easiest and nicest professor I've met at UCLA. I got an A plus since he literally handed out the exam and let us return in 2 hours.
