This lecture is enjoyable and she is definetly knowledgeable about the film industry. However, the lectures are extremely dense and very wordy and if you dont plan on entering the film industry it might be the worst class ever. she name drops like crazy and she grades super hard. if you answer correctly she will grade you down for not answering above and beyond. Despite the class being extremely straightfoward (albeit dense) she grades waayyy too hard. Take home midterm, paper, script coverage, and Final.
Summer 2017 - I took Film/TV 84A (since it has come to replace 184A) over Summer session A online. The workload was ridiculous. My on-campus lecture for Summer was far more interesting and required far less work. Weekly discussion posts/responses, 50+ pages of weekly textbook reading along with about 10 online articles per week (each of which can exceed 17 pages), and approximately 3 hours of monotone online lectures to watch weekly. This is all in addition to the 3-4 page single spaced midterm essay (which, despite being short, is very time consuming) and the 8-10 page final essay (which has been pretty difficult to write). If you have a lot of spare time on your hands over Summer and don't mind being indoors a lot, this is totally the Film class for you. Overall, while interesting, this class is way too much work for a Summer course.
