easiest and favorite class at UCLA. it was online and had such a good and easy to follow structure. midterm was a coverage report which is something great to learn how to write if you want to go into the industry! final was an 8-10 research paper on a specific film but very manageable... would recommend!

Yes the lectures are somewhat dense and it would be so much easier if she would just post the lecture slides online rather than copying them down word for word, but I have to disagree on her grading ability; especially on testing.
1) we go over quiz questions in class with the answers, 2) she gives us a study guide which pretty much is the test (she might take away a few of the questions). 3) the questions she gives for the study guide are from the possible quiz questions said in class. All you really have to do is memorize, you dont even need to do the reading.
If you are interested in the entertainment industry and know nothing about the industry itself, I highly recommend taking this class. It gives you an overview of everything which I believe is quite beneficial even if you already set on what you want to do. If you are afraid of her grading (which I promise you shouldnt be), atleast just audit the class. I promise you it will be worth it.

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.
