Quarter Taken: Fall 2018 Submitted April 16, 2019 Grade Received: A

One of the coolest professors I've ever had. He has so much experience in his field and he's super insightful (he worked for Pixar)! I really enjoyed his lectures and his required films for the class. I learned so much about scriptwriting and I hope I can take him again in the future. As long as you as you read the main points in the textbook and keep up with his points in class, you'll get a good grade. Beware, you'll get inspired to become a screenwriter.

This man is amazing. He is super encouraging, personal, successful, and funny! You learn a lot during his lectures and they are fun. It can be tough to pay attention since it is a long lecture, but you get through because of Tim. You want to be engaged with him. Plus, the work isn’t tough and the TAs are all great. Fantastic course all around!

I really enjoyed this class. The discussions are very interesting and thought provoking. I've learned to appreciate movies in a new way and have had a really fun time writing an original screenplay.

All 5 stars! Albaugh is a fantastic professor and makes lecture super engaging and fun. My TA was great and all of them seem very nice, encouraging and want to see their students succeed. The book is needed to do well on quizzes, but a really easy read and actually enjoyable.
