Fall 2023 - I suggest you don't take this class if you aren't 100% considering getting into the film industry. If you are a FILM TV minor like myself, this class is not your best option. Class is composed of 1. Development Assignment 1 2. Development Assignment 2 3. Quiz, 4. Weekly 10 Questions Submission 5. Participation. 6. Group Project The worst part about this class was that there was no structure whatsoever, You would think that you would learn about the Global Film and Television industry, but no. He barely goes in depth about how the industry is and what they do. For the 10 weeks that I spent in his class, I learned nothing. Absolutely nothing. The development assignments are also a pain. The first one is not the worst since you just write log lines, talk about your plan to produce one of your ideas, and choose a global industry and analyze it. But for the group project, you have to make 10-15 page pitch deck, a sizzle reel, and another assignment with maximum 10 people in your group. You also have to record a pitch with the group you did the assignment with and pitch it to actual film professionals, and they critique your pitch by making you go in front of the stage. The second development assignment was worse since you had to all of that work by yourself and you also had to contact a film professional from LinkedIn in order to arrange an interview with them. There was no help WHATSOEVER about this. We just had to do it. For those who desire to be in the film industry, this class might help. But for those who are in the minor and do not know much about the material, this was an absolute disaster.
