Quarter Taken: Winter 2018 Submitted March 30, 2018 Grade Received: A

I love this guy! One of the top professors I’ve ever had here. His lectures are super easy to understand and easy to follow. Plus he’s an all around sweetheart. He truly cares about his students and wants all of them to learn the beauty of filmmaking. Plus, you can bring snacks to movie days, so it’s almost like you’re in a movie theater while watching movies. The class usually watches the movies on Thursdays, and the majority of notetaking is done on Tuesday’s. I was always so excited to go to class because that’s how much I loved it. In this particular class, you get to watch the films of Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Alfred Hitchcock, James Dean, just to name a few. The only movie I didn’t like in the class was “The Piano.” It was pretty creepy and disturbing. But that’s my only complaint.
There are four pop quizzes which are open note, so it’s very easy to get an A on those. The midterm and final are extremely easy, as he tells you exactly what to study for them. No surprises at all. Just go over your notes and you’ll be solid. The group project is also really easy; each group is given a made up script from a different era (50s, 60s, 70s, etc) and you have to pick which actor and actress would be best for the leading roles. You will get an A long as you give specific and concrete reasons as to why you would cast a certain actor or actress in a movie being made. I got an A, and not only is it easy to get an A, the class is extremely entertaining. TAKE HIM TO BOOST YOUR GPA AND YOUR WILL TO LIVE!!
